DYONICS PLATINUM FR

4.5 and 5.5 mm Blades

DYONICS PLATINUM FR


The benefits of resection and tissue protection, in one blade


The PLATINUM FR (Full Radius) Blade combines a wide cutting window with a toothed inner blade, and a smooth outer blade. This uniquely designed blade is ideal for use in subacromial decompression, ACL reconstruction, and menisectomy procedures.

The large window draws in large volumes of tissue and facilitates end- and side-cutting, while the toothed inner blade helps to grab frayed tissue. The toothless outer blade has a smooth edge that won't dig into cartilage and other tissues, helping to protect the areas you don't want to resect.

In laboratory tests, the 4.5 and 5.5 mm PLATINUM FR blade outperformed leading competitive blades in resection rate and clogging: 1
