Studies show that a meniscal root repair procedure results in less stress in cartilage post operation1
The meniscal roots are responsible for maintaining placement and stability of the meniscus, and patients who have sustained a meniscal root tear often require surgery to properly repair the root or a meniscectomy. During this procedure, the root of the meniscus is often repositioned and fixated into its original anatomical attachment site using anchors or sutures.
CONMED's Y-Knot® Flex All-Suture Anchor is used to help reach stable refixation of the meniscus root without the need for an additional posterior portal.
Y-Knot® PRO Flex All-Suture Anchor
This small 1.8mm anchor can flex to help achieve optimal placement
