Cayenne has launched CrossFix System for the repair of meniscal tears at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM)
The CrossFix system offers surgeons the benefits of both open suturing and arthroscopic meniscal repair. The technology replicates results from ‘gold standard’ open suturing techniques but through a faster and less invasive all-inside method, said the company.
The CrossFix system is a suture only device that creates a 3mm mattress stitch for a fast, strong, and reliable all-inside meniscal repair. The device includes an incorporated cannula and depth limiter that controls needle penetration, reducing the risk of neurovascular injury.
Louis Rizio, MD, of Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center, said: “CrossFix is a leap forward for all-inside meniscal repair devices. CrossFix replicates the inside-out suture repair well and minimizes time and morbidity associated with inside-out repairs. The sophistication of this device is in its simplicity!”
