The inflow/outflow cannula is intended as a general purpose, concomitant suction and irrigation device for use in endoscopic surgeries. It will be used by orthopedic surgeons in arthroscopic knee and shoulder procedures as well as used in conjunction with the Stryker Flow Control Arthroscopy pump and with all 502-477-xxx scopes. The design included dual scope sheaths made of metal that offer two important features. First, it will separate the inflow irrigation to the operative site from the outflow irrigation out of the operative site. Second, the cannula will have a dual stopcock design that will separately control the inflow and outflow irrigation ports.
