Additional Product Information
The 3.2 mm diameter of the suture passer requires a minimum femoral neck drill hole of 3.5 mm. Only use this instrument in patients large enough to safely drill a 3.5 mm femoral neck hole. Depending on patient size, smaller patients should receive a maximum femoral neck hole of 2.0 mm or perhaps 2.7 mm. In these patients, a wire loop will serve the purpose of a suture passer.
