JuggerKnot® Soft Anchor Short Rigid

  • They’re Small
    • The volume of bone that is removed with a 3.0mm drill is equivalent to four 1.4mm anchor drill holes4
    • Reduces the amount of native bone removal
    • Allows for multiple points of fixation when repairing soft tissue to bone
    • Smaller diameter drill size reduces the likelihood of intersecting anchor tunnels when placing multiple anchors
  • They’re Strong
    • Strength is equal to or greater than some anchors 2 or 3 times larger1
    • High pull-out strength ranging from 20-120 lbs., depending on size of anchor2,3
  • They’re All-Suture
    • Soft anchor deployment system with no rigid component
    • Eliminates the possibility of rigid material loose bodies in the joint
    • Allows blood to repair site
  • Most commonly utilised for soft tissue to bone fixation in the foot
  • Designed with a #5 polyester sleeve, loaded with a #1 (blue/white) or #2 (blue) MaxBraid™ suture, two #5 tapered needles, and a 1.45mm anchor
  • Guideless design allows the ability to control depth of anchor insertion and rigid inserter for greater ease of insertion
  • 52 lbs. anchor pull-out strength with #1 suture and 78 lbs. anchor pull-out strength with #23
