The Lock-Stitch Tenodesis Passer isfrom the Zimmer Biomet’s extensivesuture passer collection the passer fortubular tendons. With the rounded jaw, designed for tubular tendons, the Lock-Stitch Tenodesis Passer is designed to easily grasp and tag tendons arthroscopically with the option to still externalize the tendon. This passer is designed to eliminate the need to whipstitch tendons for O.R. efficiency by reducing procedural steps.
Along with the passer is the Lock-Stitch Kit that comes with a Suture Passer Needle and two TRU-LOOP® #2 suture loops to create an instantaneous cinching knot. The TRU-LOOP suture loop is cleared for general soft tissue approximation and is most commonly used for biceps tendon stitching and rotator cuff suture passing.
