FAST-FIX 360

Meniscal Repair System

Overview

The FAST-FIX 360 System’s 360° actuation design provides improved control,1 enabling you to deploy implants in any hand position – vertically or horizontally on either side of the meniscus – with a fast, smooth, advancing motion. The spring-action design facilitates the advancement of each implant into the capsule and the auditory confirmation assures that implants are deployed. It delivers the strength of a vertical mattress suture stitch without the traditional open incision.2

The FAST-FIX 360 System, available in straight, curved and reverse curved, offers:1

  • Small insertion points
  • Easy implant deployment
  • Enhanced control due to low-profile, stiffer needle shaft
  • Strong, reproducible and easy meniscal repair
