The HEALIX BR™ Lasso Loop Biceps Tenodesis Technique enables arthoscopic tenodesis of the Biceps Tendon. Double loaded suture allows the surgeon to create a horizontally oriented stitch and a vertically oriented lasso-loop stitch. The horizontal stitch is tied and the lasso-loop stitch is tied over it creating a cruciform orientation. The horizontal suture provides back-up fixation and the vertically oriented lasso-loop stitch offers radial compression force and grip of the tendon. This technique offers fixation and allows the tendon to be tied directly to the bone surface prior to tendon resection. This allows the length-tension relationship of the biceps to be maintained.
