Suture Retriever

It is a suture retriever the surgical equivalent to a needle threader. It consists of a handle, a shaft and a loop.

During surgery, the suture retriever is inserted into a hole that has been drilled into the tendon or bone. After the instrument carefully passes through the tendon or bone, the suture thread is inserted into the loop of the suture retriever and then passed back through the bone and secured. This is most commonly performed in hip, shoulder and knee surgeries.
