JuggerKnot™ Soft Anchor

It’s small. It’s strong. And it's all suture.

The JuggerKnot™ Soft Anchor represents the next generation of suture anchor technology. The 1.4mm deployable anchor design is a completely suture-based system, and is the first of its kind.
  • Loaded with #1 MaxBraid™ Suture—leaves a lower knot profile vs. a #2 suture
  • Tapered #5 needles can be used to tie down soft tissue
  • Small drill guide minimizes invasive to surrounding tissue invasion
  • Smaller anchor diameter allows multiple anchors to be placed
  • Reduces likelihood of intersecting anchors when placing multiple anchors
  • Soft anchor deployment system—completely suture based implant
  • Anchor made from #5 polyester suture
  • Eliminates the possibility of rigid material loose bodies in the joint
  • The volume of bone that is removed with a 3.0mm drill is equivalent to four JuggerKnot™ device drill holes
Foot and Ankle Indications
  • Medial / lateral repair and reconstruction
  • Medial / lateral repair and reconstruction
  • Mid- and forefoot repair
  • Hallux valgus reconstruction
  • Metatarsal ligament/tendon repair or reconstruction
  • Achilles Tendon Repair
Hand and Wrist Indications
  • Collateral ligament repair
  • Scapholunate ligament reconstruction
  • Tendon transfers in phalanx
  • Volar plate reconstruction
Studies by Alan Barber, M.D., et al., have shown the 1.4mm JuggerKnot™ Soft Anchor to have higher load to failure in both cortical and cancellous bone as compared to other 3mm anchors.

It’s small. It’s strong.1,2 And it’s all suture.
