EasyWhipTM is a patent-pending surgical suturing needle intended to be used for whip stitching in orthopedic reconstruction procedures. It consists of a two-part, removably connected needle attached to the ends of a length of non- degradable orthopedic suture. This novel construct allows the user to create a whip stitch with a single incision while securely clamping the graft on both ends, which improves the stability, speed, and efficiency of graft stitching.
