Y-Knot® RC 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.

Y-Knot RC can be used for Rotator Cuff repair, Massive Rotator Cuff revision/augmentation, and Achilles procedures.
