    • Open tfcc repair 0 small
      • Arthrex introduces an all-arthroscopic, knotless technique to repair peripheral ulnar tears of the articular disk. The advantage of this technique is that it repairs both superficial and deep layers (ligamentum subcrunetum) of the articular disk back-to-bone at their anatomic insertion. In addition, using a knotless technique decreases potential …
    • Arthroscopic repair with the micro suturelasso 0 small
      • Using standard wrist arthroscopy portals and setup, type 1B tears of the TFCC are repaired back to their anatomic insertion on the bone. Using a specialized Micro SutureLasso™ suture passer, a 2-0 FiberWire® suture is passed through the TFCC and a mattress stitch is created. The TFCC kit is then used to place a knotless 2.5 mm PushLock …
    • Arthroscopic tfcc repair 0 small
      • The Arthrex Micro SutureLassos were designed to facilitate repair of the TFCC, whether the dorsal or palmar capsular ligament portion is torn. Each Micro SutureLasso has a 20-gauge tip designed to be less traumatic to the TFCC and surrounding ligament during passing. Both inside/out and outside/in techniques can be used, as well as a double …
    • Knotless repair to bone 0 small
      • Using standard arthroscopic portals, the Micro SutureLasso™ are directed through the TFCC tissue adjacent to the tear. The Micro SutureLasso can be inserted using either the outside-in or inside-out techniques. A specialized 2-0 FiberStick allows direct passage of 2-0 FiberWire suture through the Micro SutureLasso and TFCC tissue. Using …
    • Coolcut radio frequency ablation 0 small
      • The OPES CoolCut™ Radio Frequency Ablation device features an innovative ergonomic handle with finger touch controls. The 90° versions have a unique shape that allows for maximum extension from the tip of the electrode to the shaft of the device, while still fitting through a 5 mm cannula. The new CoolCut shaft coating facilitates easy …
    • Coolcut specialty length small joint 0 small
      • The CoolCut™ Specialty Length Shaver Blades represent a wide range of high quality, single use, and sterile disposable shaver blades for arthroscopic surgical procedures of the hip, ankle, wrist and elbow. The disposable shaver blades can be used in all Arthrex shaver handpieces and can be inserted with the cutting window in the up or down …
    • Fiberlink and tigerlink 0 small
      • FiberLink and TigerLink sutures are 1.3 mm SutureTape or #2 FiberWire® suture with a closed loop on one end. These sutures were designed to create cinch stitches by simply passing the suture through tissue and feeding the free end through the loop for tensioning. Lock the cinch stitch into position using the Knotless PushLock® or …
    • Hand and wrist fiberloop 0 small
      • Part of the FiberWire® suture family, FiberLoop® is FiberWire suture where both ends of the suture are attached to a single needle, creating a suture loop. FiberLoop is the perfect suture option for multi-strand tendon repairs. These small diameter looped FiberWire products allow for strong multi-strand flexor and extensor tendon repairs while …
    • Fibersnare 0 small
      • FiberSnare® is a #2 FiberWire® with a small loop on one end while the opposite end is stiffened 12 inches. This provides an easy one step approach to creating a FiberWire loop on the tip of the Bio-Tenodesis Driver. Instead of using a nitinol wire, insert the stiff non-looped end retrograde through the tip of the Bio-Tenodesis …
    • Hand and wrist fiberstick 0 small
      • FiberStick™ and TigerStick® are part of the FiberWire® family. The stiff “waxed” end of the FiberStick and TigerStick allows convenient and easy advancement through most cannulated instruments or spinal needles. By allowing simple push-through passing of FiberWire suture, it alleviates the need for a monofilament suture or wire suture …
    • Foot and ankle fiberwire 0 small
      • Orthopaedic surgeons enthusiastically endorse FiberWire® for its feel and knot tying ability. The first throw stays down, facilitating reproducible tissue repair.  Sliding knots advance smoothly, easing arthroscopic knot tying procedures. Multiple independent scientific studies documented significant increases in strength-to-failure, …
    • Fiberwire 0 small
      • FiberWire® suture is constructed of a multi-strand, long chain ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) core with a braided jacket of polyester and UHMWPE that gives FiberWire® superior strength, soft feel and abrasion resistance that is unequaled in orthopaedic surgery. FiberWire® is the first suture on the market to offer a …
    • Hand and wrist fiberwire tigerwire 0 small
      • Trusted by leading surgeons worldwide, FiberWire suture has been used in over one million orthopedic surgical procedures. Available in 2-0, 3-0, and 4-0 and with multiple needle and length configurations, FiberWire suture is ideally suited for hand and wrist procedures.
    • Fingershield 0 small
      • The FingerShield is a woven polyester sleeve with an embedded radiopaque blue marker designed to reduce pressure induced lacerations to the digits of the hand caused by repetitive knot tying during surgery. They slip right over sterile gloves when needed. The tips are left open to allow pinch grasp of suture strands, while still protecting …
