About this product

Division: Mitek Sports Medicine
Category: Meniscal Repair

The OMNISPAN™ Meniscal Repair System is designed to provide optimized all-inside meniscal repairs.  The system consists of a low profile needle, pre-loaded with two PEEK backstops and ORTHOCORD® suture, which are delivered using the OMNISPAN applier. The OMNISPAN meniscal repair system is the only all-inside system that contains partially absorbable suture and does not leave a hard body or knot on the surface of the meniscus.


Features & Benefits


  Features Benefits
The system provides a mattress stitch repair, which is comparable to a gold standard inside out stitch. There are no hard bodies or knots on the meniscal surface. OMNISPAN repairs leave no hard bodies making contact with the femoral chondyles. Even the knot has been moved to the backside of the meniscus, leaving a low profile double span of #2/0 ORTHOCORD suture.
Less Mass Postoperatively
  • While providing strength, #2/0 ORTHOCORD is composed of 55% PDS™* and 45% High Molecular Weight Polyethylene. As a result, the suture’s PDS component is resorbable and will result in less suture mass on the surface of the meniscus over time.
Active Deployment
  • The active deployment provided by the OMNISPAN applier allows you decide when and where the backstops are ultimately deployed behind the meniscus.
Needles are offered in Straight, 12 degree and 27 degree angles. Three needle types enable access to different areas of the meniscus.
Supporting instrumentation A reusable suture cutter and probe are available.
