The Suture Lasso is sterile, disposable, stainless steel needles are 2.3 mm outer diameter tip and comes preloaded with a monofilament loop of suture used to shuttle suture through soft tissue. 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.
The sharp tip and small diameter shaft will easily penetrate soft tissue while the reinforced shaft resists bending. After the tip is passed through soft tissue, the loop is deployed and retrieved through a cannula with a Crochet Hook or Suture Retriever. A suture strand or suture tail from a previously placed suture anchor is placed in the loop, and the opposite end of the loop is pulled, delivering the suture through tissue and out the cannula.
