Labral Repair with an Oblique Mattress Utilizing a 90 Degree SutureLasso™, TigerStick® and 3.5 Labral SwiveLock®


Dr. Christopher Adams (Naples, FL) describes an easy knotless labral repair utilizing an oblique mattress stitch that may have some advantages over horizontal or vertical mattress stitches.  The mattress stitch is created with an all-inside suture passing technique utilizing a #2 TigerStick® passed directly with a 90° SutureLasso, eliminating the need for complex suture shuttling steps.  Knotless fixation is achieved with a Labral SwiveLock®.  The final result is a low profile repair leaving no possibility of knot impingement.
