Y-Knot® RC

Self-Punching All-Suture Anchor with Needles

Product Overview

Y-Knot® RC All-Suture Anchor with Needles combines the benefits of the Y-Knot® RC with a mini-open system, ideal for surgeons who use anchors with needles during open procedures. With strong fixation1,2, less bone removal and a simple, self-punching technique, the Y-Knot® RC with Needles helps overcome the trade-offs of other fixation methods. Currently the only self-punching all-suture anchor available, Y-Knot RC anchors with needles 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.

What our customers have to say."During the development of my augmentation technique, I did extensive research on both allograft and xnograft options. I ultimately chose the Allopatch HD® because of its aseptic harvesting technique, lack of terminal irradiation, and its excellent biomechanical and biochemical properties. Coupling this with the Y-Knot® system, we have created a minimally invasive, yet solid and durable fixation of the allograft to the underlying tendon repair, thus providing a structural component in addition to the extracellular matrix for tendon healing. This provides an avenue for potentially better care for both revision patients and the at-risk primary repair with questionable tendon quality."
