SEQUENT™ Meniscal Repair System

The Sequent™ Meniscal Repair Device is an All-Inside, Stay-Inside system comprised of PEEK implants and Hi-FI ® suture that can create up to six continuous stitches for a knotless repair in any configuration.

This technology provides surgeons a meniscal repair technique with the opportunity for a faster repair. It also reduces meniscal trauma and the risk of chondral damage.

Target any size meniscal tear pathology, including oblique, longitudinal, transverse, horizontal and bucket handle with ease, using as few as two or as many as six continuous stitches.

Sequent offers three different size configurations, allowing surgeons to choose the right tool to repair virtually any meniscal tear using the easy-to-master PRDT technique.

Contour™ Meniscus Arrow™

The new Contour™ Meniscus Arrow™ implant is indicated for the repair of vertical, longitudinal "Bucket-Handle" tears of the meniscus in the vascular zone (red-red-white) through arthroscopic and open methods. The Contour™ Meniscus Arrow™ implant features a low profile contoured head, which sinks into the meniscus while compressing the tear. It is barbed along the entire length of the implant shaft for superior fixation strength.

The Contour™ Meniscus Arrow™ implants are made of a new proprietary Self-Reinforced copolymer, 80L/20D,L PLA, which imparts to the implants an ultra-high strength microstructure that has a unique ability to resist shear and torque while the tear is healing. The new 80L/20D,L PLA copolymer is a faster resorbing implant material that will continue to provide strength for up to 24 weeks while the tear is remodeling and then gradually resorb away.

Zone Specific II Meniscal Repair System

A complete system of cannulas, needles and rasps specifically designed for inside-out meniscal repair procedures.
Six pre-bent cannulas provide optimum access to all zones of the meniscus.
Funnel ends make loading of needles safe and easy, and fluid venting ports direct fluid away from the surgeon.

Double-arm meniscal repair needles are made of stainless steel, and are ultrathin and strong, yet flexible for easy passage. They have #2/0 polyester braided suture conveniently pre-attached. Meniscal repair needles are made of flexible nitinol, and have a large eyelet at one end to permit easy threading of suture material. Four styles of meniscal rasps promote vascularity of meniscal tissue prior to suturing, with minimal risk to articulating surfaces.
