RC Needle and Kessler Needle

Biomet Healthcare Professionals Sports Medicine RC Needle and Kessler Needle

Major rotator cuff tears are quite common and have a multifactorial etiology including attrition (impingement), trauma and degeneration (vascular). There are some surgeons that favor open repair versus an arthroscopic approach for large tears of the rotator cuff. The RC Needle allows for complete repair of the rotator cuff by securely suturing the tendon into a bony trough using non-absorbable sutures.
