COR-KNOT® DEVICE
Titanium Suture Fastening Technology

OUTSIDE OF CANNULA

THREADING SUTURE THROUGH A LOADED COR-KNOT® FASTENER
Extracorporeally: Surgeons typically use their non-dominant hand to hold the device near the end of the shaft and their dominant hand to complete the suture threading technique.

PASS both ends of the suture through the open wire snare at the end of the shaft.

PULL the curved handle with its attached wire snare containing the suture ends towards the purple lever to draw the snared bends in the suture into the COR-KNOT® FASTENER.

THREAD the suture through the COR-KNOT® FASTENER and out of the suture hole near the end of the shaft by continuing to pull the curved handle until the wire snare and both ends of the suture exit through the suture hole.

GRASP both ends of the suture after passing off the curved handle with the wire snare.
