Y-Knot® RC All-Suture Anchor with Tape

Self-Punching All-Suture Anchor with Hi-Fi® Tape

Product Overview

With strong fixation, less bone removal and a simple, self-punching technique, the Y-Knot® RC helps overcome the trade-offs of other rotator cuff fixation methods. Currently the only self-punching all-suture anchor available, Y-Knot RC anchors can help streamline procedures with a fast efficient technique that eliminates the need to create and find a pilot hole. In addition to requiring less bone removal than larger traditional anchors, the small 2.8mm footprint provides placement and fixation advantages when bone real estate is limited, especially during revisions.

Y-Knot RC can be used for Rotator Cuff repair, Massive Rotator Cuff revision/augmentation, Superior Capsular reconstruction, Remplissage, Distal or Proximal Biceps repair, and Achilles procedures.


Now for the first time, get the benefits of a self-punching all-suture anchor combined with Hi-Fi Tape:

  • 69% less abrasive than the leading competitor when measuring tendon tear-through1
  • Broader compression than #2 suture for increased tendon-to-bone interface
  • More than twice as strong as #2 suture2
  • Simplifies double-row repairs by eliminating need for medial knot tying

What our customers have to say."During the development of my augmentation technique, I did extensive research on both allograft and xenograft options. I ultimately chose the Allopatch HD® because of its aseptic harvesting technique, lack of terminal irradiation, and its excellent biomechanical and biochemical properties. Coupling this with the Y-Knot® system, we have created a minimally invasive, yet solid and durable fixation of the allograft to the underlying tendon repair, thus providing a structural component in addition to the extracellular matrix for tendon healing. This provides an avenue for potentially better care for both revision patients and the at-risk primary repair with questionable tendon quality."
