Y-Knot® Flex

All-Suture Anchor

Product Overview

With it's small size and innovative instrumentation, the Y-Knot® Flex System was designed to help achieve optimal anchor placement. The anchors provide up to 55% greater fixation strength than conventional 3.0mm press fit anchors while removing up to 80% less bone.1 The curved and percutaneous delivery systems enable delivery around a curve and perpendicular placement for posterior SLAP and inferior Bankart repairs.

This can also be used for PASTA repair, Distal and Proximal Biceps repair, and Lateral Ankle Instability.

NEW! Y-Knot® PRO Flex
The Y-Knot® PRO combines our Y-Knot® anchor with a new, cleat-less suture release technology. The Y-Knot® PRO:

  • Eliminates the need for un-cleating sutures after implanting the anchor by providing a more efficient delivery system.
  • Available on all Y-Knot® Flex anchors.

NEW! Y-Knot® Flex with Hi-Fi® Ribbon
Hi-Fi® Ribbon is a 1.3mm wide, flat, tie-able tape. Ribbon is:

  • 2X wider than #2 suture for broader compression and increased tendon-to-bone interface
  • 14.0% stronger than high-strength USP #2 suture 2
  • Smaller knot stacks than USP #2 suture 3

Y-Knot® Flex with #2 Suture
#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. 4

What our customers have to say."The curved inserters allow for better access to the inferior portion of the joint, helping us get an anchor down low with standard portals. Now, we can stay within the rotator interval and leave the other tendons around the shoulder alone.”
