KINSA Anchor - Smith & Nephew

The Smith & Nephew KINSA Suture Anchor for instability is intended to provide secure fixation of soft tissue to bone. The KINSA Anchor consists of a tap-in, non-absorbable polymer anchor, preloaded with ULTRABRAID™ Suture (cobraid) and loaded onto a disposable inserter. A self-locking, sliding knot, based on the Smith & Nephew FAST-FIX™ Meniscal Repair System, is contained in the anchor allowing secure fixation without tying any knots. The design allows the tension placed on the tissue for fixation to be totally independent of the anchor depth. A suture loop reduces the tissue, leaving a low profile repair with no knot stack in the joint.

The KINSA anchor is used for Arthroscopic Stabilisation and SLAP repair procedures
