The convenient Single Use Osteochondral Autograft Transfer System® (OATS) facilitates harvesting of 6, 8, or 10mm osteochondral hyaline cartilage cylinders from a donor site superior and lateral to the notch or above the sulcus terminalis. A recipient socket, sized to the appropriate depth, is created in the chondral defect to accept the donor graft. The bone cylinder can be visualised through the clear delivery tube while it is inserted with the collared pin delivery system for press fit fixation. The completely disposable, size-specific system includes a recipient cutting tube, donor cutting tube, alignment stick, tamp, clear delivery tube, threaded driver for controlled push-in core insertion, and optional tap-in insertion rod.
Single Use OATS® has a clinically proven ten year pedigree, providing restoration of host hyaline cartilage in load bearing applications. Another example of Arthrex’s commitment to helping surgeons treat their patients better.
