Guidance for use in rotator cuff repair

Treatment using the NanoFx instruments will typically be accomplished as part of an arthroscopic or minimal access surgical procedure. No specific or unique surgical incisions are required.

NanoFx surgical technique


Place the Arthrosurface NanoFx PleuriStik Guide Wire (with Thumble Thumb Tab Accessory attached) tip first into the proximal lumen of the Hand Instrument.


Place the distal tip of the NanoFx Hand Instrument at the desired footprint target site.


Make light mallet strikes on the exposed proximal tailstock of the PleuriStik Guide Wire, sufficient to drive the PleuriStik Guide Wire to its full depth of 9mm.


For easy, one handed extraction the PleuriStik Guide Wire, use the NanoFx Thumble. Then place the needle approximately 2mm from the previous channel. Repeat steps 2-4 until there are a sufficient amount of NanoFx channels across the desired footprint.
