About this product

Division: Mitek Sports Medicine
Category: Arthroscopic Capital Equipment

Delivering differentiation that matters, so you can focus on the patient and resect precisely.

To ensure your cases run fluidly, our FMS VUE fluid management portfolio delivers the clarity, consistency, control and proven cost savings² you need to keep your team’s attention where it should be: on the patient.

It’s also the only shaver system to be incorporated into a fluid management system for optimal suction, visual clarity and pressure control. This, along with delivering up to 500% less metal particulate versus leading competitors³ and an ever-expanding blade and burr portfolio, means you resect precisely, case after case.

Due to the broad FMS shaver portfolio, surgeons have access to high-quality mechanical resection tools for use across a wide-range of arthroscopic surgical procedures, including rotator cuff repair, sub acromial decompression, shoulder instability, ACL and PCL repair, meniscus repair, and more.

Part of the DePuy Synthes VUE Arthroscopic Equipment Solutions portfolio.
