2 Sizes of Toggle Pins with Cross-holes

Toggle Pin


Toggle pins are placed medial to the acetabular wall to anchor suture. The cross-hole sizes are compatible with most commonly used sizes of suture material.

Implant quality 316LVM, stainless steel

Additional Product Information

Depending on the size of suture used, the required acetabular wall drill bit may be approximately the same size as the toggle pin or up to 1-2 millimeters larger (to allow for large suture). The blunt end of a suture passer can be used to assist with final passage of the toggle pin through the acetabular wall. Femoral neck drill bit diameter should not risk mechanical or biologic damage to the femoral neck.
