AC Wire Passer
The Acromioclavicular Wire Passer is designed to fit through a small incision on the clavicle and curve around the coracoid, allowing a FiberStick™ to be passed through the cannulation and retrieved on the lateral side of the coracoid.
The BirdBeak® has an extremely sharp tip to penetrate soft tissue easily and a stiff shaft that resists bending during tissue shifting procedures. The BirdBeaks are an essential tool for arthroscopic labral, SLAP or rotator cuff repair. The BirdBeak Evolution® has a uniquely designed handle that allows for easy operation from virtually any hand position.
The NeedlePunch® II is a simple, versatile and effective suture passing instrument. The NeedlePunch® needle is loaded into the bottom jaw of the instrument and the back handle is squeezed slightly, locking the needle into place. Once the desired bite of tissue is grasped, deploy the needle through the cuff by squeezing the back handle. The needle comes up through the soft tissue and locks into the catch mechanism on the upper jaw. To retrieve the needle, open the jaw and remove the instrument. The needle swivels back for easy extraction. The needle is available in multiple configurations for shuttling suture through tissue and for side-to-side cuff repairs.
The Penetrator™ Retriever is a unique instrument that combines a small penetrating tip with a suture grasper to allow suture delivery or extraction in one step. The 2.7 mm diameter tip slides easily through the tissue with the suture either sliding or grasped within the self-ratcheting mechanism. A special version, with wider jaw, is available to easily manipulate FiberTapes.
Rhino Suture Passer
The Rhino Suture Passer is the next generation in reusable suture passing devices. The extremely sharp, small diameter tip will easily penetrate soft tissue and the ridged 3.4 mm shaft will resist bending and flexing during tissue shifting procedures. The configurations include straight, left and right curve with an upturned tip. The novel bottom opening jaw design is conveniently positioned to capture the suture from an anchor, eliminating the need to rotate the instrument.
Scorpion™ Suture Passers
Scorpion suture passers are used in shoulder arthroscopy for rotator cuff and labral repair.
