Simplified Posterior Portal Creation and Cannula Insertion Using the Knee Obturator


The Knee Obturator has been specially designed to simplify the location and creation of posterior knee portals, as well as introduction of a cannula. Posterior portals are often necessary for several common procedures such as loose body removal, PCL reconstruction, meniscal root avulsion repair and popliteal cyst debridement.

The knee obturator saves time and adds a measure of safety to the procedure when compared to traditional outside-in techniques with a spinal needle.  The knee obturator also allows easy insertion of the Passport Button Cannula utilizing traction sutures.  Once inserted, the Passport Cannula facilitates easy passage of straight and curved instruments or an arthroscope into the posterior compartment.
