DePuy Mitek, Inc., a leading manufacturer of surgical sports medicine devices, announced the launch of the EXPRESSEW II Flexible Suture Passer, a minimally invasive device that saves time and increases operating room efficiency during arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery. EXPRESSEW II, the next generation in lateral suture passers offered by DePuy Mitek, saves time by providing simplified needle and suture loading and an automated, one-step procedure for passing the needle and suture through the rotator cuff tendon. Its enhanced ergonomics and function provide simplicity, flexibility and reliability in suture management.
"This next-generation device has been thoughtfully engineered to significantly reduce one of the most difficult aspects of arthroscopic shoulder surgery."
