This complete system specifically designed for inside-out meniscal repair procedures features cannulas, needles and rasps. Six pre-bent cannulas provide optimum access to all zones of the meniscus with funnel ends that make the loading of needles safe and easy, and fluid venting ports direct fluid away from the surgeon. Double-arm meniscal repair needles are made of stainless steel, and are ultrathin and strong, yet flexible for easy passage. They have #2/0 high strength suture conveniently pre-attached. Meniscal repair needles are made of flexible nitinol, and have a large eyelet at one end to permit easy threading of suture material.
