Soft. The Y-Knot All-Suture Anchor from CONMED is made entirely of high strength UHMWPE suture, eliminating the possibility of hard loose-bodies in the joint.
Small. The Y-Knot anchor's 1.3mm drill bit removes 80% less bone than a 3.0mm press-fit anchor. Its small footprint means more potential for tissue-to-bone contact and enables more points of fixation to be made where they are needed most.
Secure. When deployed, the anchor contracts vertically and expands laterally, producing 360° FormFit™ fixation within the bone. This provides 189N of pull-out strength and 30% less creep under cyclic loading than competing all-suture anchors.*
