Meniscal Repair System


The all-new 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.

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 best reproduce the vertical mattress suture technique. You can count on a strong, reproducible and reliable meniscal repair.
