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.
|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||
|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.|
