FAST-FIX 360

Meniscal Repair System

Overview

The FAST-FIX 360 Meniscal Repair System offers exceptional fixation strength, easier implant deployment, smaller insertion points, built-in depth penetration limiter and a stiffer needle shaft for enhanced control. All this to help optimize the chances of a successful meniscus repair.  

*compared to previous meniscal repair systems

Fast-click, active implant deployment

  • Unique 360° actuation design enables you to deploy implants in any hand position - vertically, horizontally, on either side of the meniscus - with a fast, smooth advancing motion.

Minimal disruption to the meniscus

  • Smaller implants and pre-tied, self-sliding knot made of ULTRABRAID 2-0 Suture create smaller needle insertions, reducing disruption to the meniscus.

Low profile with improved control

  • Low profile, stiffer needle shaft improves control while enabling access and visibility to hard-to-reach areas of the meniscus.

Built-in adjustable depth penetration

  • Set needle depth penetration from 10 mm to 18 mm with the simple push of a button.

Like its predecessor, the FAST-FIX 360 System has biomechanical properties that reproduce the vertical mattress suture technique. You can count on a strong, reproducible and reliable meniscal repair.

Technique

Technique Overview



1. Insert needle and push 360 degree actuation trigger to deploy T1. An audible click confirms deployment.


2. Retract needle and repeat previous step to deploy T2. An audible click confirms deployment.


3. Pull on the suture to advance the pre-tied sliding knot and reduce the tear.


4. Recess the knot into the meniscus with knot pusher/cutter, and trim excess suture.

A number of studies have been published that clearly define the benefits of preserving as much functional meniscus as possible to help restore the loading profiles of the joint and to potentially minimize the risk of degenerative disease such as osteoarthritis. Removal of meniscal tissue has been shown to cause increased contact stress and to result in degeneration of the articular cartilage over the long term. In recent years, arthroscopic repair techniques have become more prevalent and widely accepted for the treatment of meniscal tears. Arthroscopy can provide easier access to the knee and potentially avoid the risks of open surgical procedures.1
