The Y-Knot® RC All-Suture Anchor System® for rotator cuff repair helps improve surgical flexibility and access with small and simple all-suture anchors that deliver secure fixation. Best of all, it’s self punching.
The Y-Knot® RC All-Suture Anchor System represents our next generation of arthroscopic soft tissue fixation. As we continue our commitment to developing new tools that enhance your ability to provide the highest level of minimally invasive care, Y-Knot® RC Anchors deliver a wide range of benefits to both surgeon and their patients.
Our Y-Knot® RC All-Suture anchors feature 360° FormFit™ fixation – contracting vertically while expanding laterally when deployed for strong purchase in bone with a small footprint. The 2.8mm Y-Knot® RC has a double-loaded and triple-loaded option both available with #2 Hi-Fi® Sutures.
The Y-Knot® RC produces 58% higher pullout than the JuggerKnot 2.97 in soft cancellous bone.
