The TWISTR™ Retrograde Reamer (“Retroreamer”) is a disposable outside-in retrograde reamer that consists of a drill pin with deployable blade and an outer sleeve with graduated markings. The TWISTR Retrograde Reamer can accommodate a range of diameters (6-12 mm in half millimeter increments) in a single device. The outer sleeve is circumferentially laser marked in 5 mm increments to assist in measuring tunnel depth.
The TWISTR Retrograde Reamer is intended for general surgical use during orthopedic procedures.
Surgeons performing cruciate ligament reconstructions desire anatomic tunnel placement, which can be difficult to achieve with inside-out drilling techniques. The one-size-fits-all TWISTR™ Retrograde Reamer & Cruciate+ Instruments enable precision, outside-in tunnel drilling, while removing the need to hyper-flex the knee and reducing the risk of condylar damage during drilling.
