FlexPasser™ Tendon Retrieval Kit

For atraumatic retrieval of severed flexor tendons with minimal incisions.
  • Retrieve retracted tendon end with minimal incisions

  • Reduce the risk of damage to tendon end compared to standard technique*

  • Potential to avoid repeat suturing of the tendon end

Surgery to repair lacerated or severed flexor tendons in the hand can lead to additional trauma to the tendon end or tendon sheath which may cause adhesion post-operatively. This trauma and possible adhesion can reduce the range of movement and impair the outcome of the surgery (1,2,3).

The FlexPasser Tendon Retrieval Kit provides a system of single use instrumentation for the retrieval of the retracted proximal tendon stump(s) during the repair of lacerated digital flexor tendon(s) in the hand.

For further information please read the FlexPasser Tendon Retrieval Kit Instructions For Use.
