The Kit (including the blade) is intended as a set of manual instruments that provide general surgical access to the joint. The Kit is designed for general arthroscopic surgical use.
|One-piece design||Optimizing strength for use in the deep hip joint|
|Sharp rounded tip||Optimizing the surface available for cutting while designed to minimize the risk of iatrogenic damage|
|13 mm blade||Providing sufficient working surface to cut through thick patient capsule (1 cm)*. *Weidner et al. Clin Orthop Relat Res (2012) 470:3306–3312|
|28 cm length tip to tip||The longest working length currently available allowing the surgeon to use for a variety of patient sizes.|
|15 cm texture on handle||Providing a sure grip on the handle where the surgeon chooses.|
|4.0mm diameter||Fits easily through a 4.5 mm cannula. The cannula can also be removed over the distal end for percuntaneous use.|
