AS Meniscal Repair Device
2013 ESP Award Nominee
Covidien's AS Meniscal Repair Device enables orthopedic surgeons to perform “all-inside,” minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus in the knee using the gold standard “all-suture” method of fixation. The new device, designed for intuitive use, works with only one thumb slide actuation and no complex components. It also features clear, laser-etched depth markings on the specially coated needles, allowing for precision in depth of penetration. Needles are available in two configurations, curved and straight, to meet surgeons’ diverse repair needs.
