MaxFire MarXmen Meniscal Repair Device with ZipLoop Technology

The next generation of all-inside, all-suture meniscal repair. Building upon the proven strength1 of the MaxFire Device, the MaxFire MarXmen Meniscal Repair Device incorporates an easy-to-use2 one-handed trigger delivery system. The MaxFire MarXmen trigger delivery system requires the least amount of insertion force when compared to other all-inside meniscal repair devices.2 Using the rigid tube cannula helps protect the surrounding structures in the joint. The cannula houses the needle sled when the device is inserted into the joint space, and is available in curved and straight geometries. The needle sled guides the deployment path of the MaxFire MarXmen device. Depth markings in 2mm increments control the depth of penetration through the meniscus.
