Description

With strong fixation, less bone removal and a simple, self-punching technique, the Y-Knot® RC helps overcome the trade-offs of other rotator cuff fixation methods. Currently the only self-punching all-suture anchor available, Y-Knot RC anchors can help streamline procedures with a fast efficient technique that eliminates the need to create and find a pilot hole. In addition to requiring less bone removal than larger traditional anchors, the small 2.8mm footprint provides placement and fixation advantages when bone real estate is limited, especially during revisions.

Now for the first time, get the benefits of a self-punching all-suture anchor combined with Hi-Fi Tape:

69% less abrasive than the leading competitor when measuring tendon tear-through1
Broader compression than #2 suture for increased tendon-to-bone interface
More than twice as strong as #2 suture2
Simplifies double-row repairs by eliminating need for medial knot tying
