Torn knee cartilage generally produces pain in the region of the tear and swelling in the knee joint. Torn meniscus fragments can get caught in the knee joint and, if a large enough fragment becomes lodged between the bearing surfaces, the knee may become unable to be fully bent or extended. Minimally invasive techniques can repair this issue.
CONMED's Sequent® Meniscal Repair Device is an all-inside, stay-inside system comprised of PEEK implants and Hi-Fi® suture that can create up to six continuous stitches for a knotless repair in any configuration. This technology provides surgeons the opportunity for a faster repair and also reduces meniscal trauma and risk of chondral damage.
