The Mini Suture Lasso replaces 18-gauge needles for arthroscopic suture passing. Sterile, disposable, stainless steel needles are 20-gauge at the tip and taper to 16-gauge at the handle to provide the added stiffness needed for percutaneous placement for arthroscopic suture passing in upper and lower extremities. The ergonomic plastic handle facilitates accurate placement and control. Advancement of a pre-loaded fine nitinol wire loop shuttles any suture through tissue. A selection of straight and curved shafts provides accessibility to difficult to reach structures.
