Y-Knot® PRO RC

Self-Punching All-Suture Anchor

With strong fixation, less bone removal, and a simple, self-punching technique, the Y-Knot® PRO RC helps overcome the trade-offs of other rotator cuff fixation methods.

The first self-punching all-suture anchor available, Y-Knot® RC anchors can help streamline procedures with a fast and 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 is limited, especially during revisions. It can be used in numerous joint spaces.

The Y-Knot® PRO RC features cleatless suture release technology. This eliminates the need for uncleating sutures after implanting the anchor, providing a more efficient delivery system.

Y-Knot® PRO RC is available with Hi-Fi® Ribbon, Hi-Fi® Tape, and #2 suture.

Hi-Fi® Ribbon is a 1.3mm wide, flat, tie-able tape. It's 2X wider than #2 suture for broader compression and increased tendon-to-bone interface. Ribbon is also 14% stronger than high-strength USP #2 suture1 and provides smaller knot stacks than USP #2 suture.2

Hi-Fi® Tape is 69% less abrasive than the leading competitor when measuring tendon tear-through.3 It offers broader compression than #2 suture for increased tendon-to-bone interface and is more than twice as strong as #2 suture.4 It can help simplify double-row repairs by eliminating the need for medial knot tying.

#2 Hi-Fi® Suture is a braided, non-absorbable suture for soft tissue repair designed to provide exceptional strength for knot tying while helping minimize tendon damage. CONMED's #2 Hi-Fi® Suture was shown to reduce mean cutting rate by over 50% when compared to FiberWire and FiberTape, which were more abrasive on the suture-tendon interface and led to higher tendon tear-through.5
