Recommended Knotted Anchor: Y-Knot® RC Self-Punching All-Suture Anchor with Hi-Fi® Tape
|•||Self-punching: no pilot hole required, eliminating extra step|
|•||Smaller: 2.8mm footprint for less bone removal, great for maximizing compression and revision cases|
|•||Stronger fixation (603N) than traditional 5.5mm anchors2|
|•||All-suture: no hard loose bodies left in the joint|
|•||Enables multiple stitching configurations|
CrossFT™ Knotless Anchor with Hi-Fi® Tape
|ALSO AVAILABLE: CrossFT™ Knotless PEEK Suture anchor with Hi-Fi® Tape|
Why use Hi-Fi®?
Think about this:
BOTH our #2 Hi-Fi Suture4 and Hi-Fi® Tape1 cause less abrasion and tendon tear-through than a leading competitor
Reduced Abrasion & Tendon
A Less Abrasive Option4
Peer-reviewed literature has shown that
CONMED’s #2 Hi-Fi® Suture reduced mean
cutting rate by over 50% when compared to
a competitor’s suture and tape*, which were
more abrasive on the suture-tendon interface
and led to higher tendon tear-through.4
Recommended Knotless Anchor: CrossFT Knotless PEEK Suture Anchor with Hi-Fi® Tape
|•||Controlled tension to optimize tendon compression|
|•||Hi-Fi® Tape is 69% less abrasive than than a leading competitor’s tape* when measuring tendon tear-through1|
|•||Strong: Dual-thread pattern for cortical and cancellous bone fixation|
|•||Able to accept up to 6 limbs of suture|
|•||4.0mm, 4.75mm and 5.5mm diameters|
|What is Controlled Tension?
CrossFT™ Knotless anchors allow surgeons to control suture tension on cuff tendon. This is designed to reduce the risk of over-tensioning the repair which could cut off blood flow to the tendon.

One System for Every Technique
With the right combination of Y-Knot RC and CrossFT Knotless anchors, the CuffLink Solution supports virturally every double-row rotator cuff technique for maximum versatility.
CuffLink™ Knotless Anchor
Medial Pulley Stitch Technique
Two CrossFT™ Knotless anchors with Tape or Y-Knot® RC with Tape medially and two CrossFT™ Knotless anchors laterally. #2 sutures from medial row anchors are passed and tied as a medial pulley. The medial pulley provides medial row compression.
