CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1. A multi-barrel drill guide, comprising:

an elongated body extending along a longitudinal axis having a proximal end and a distal end with a handle extending from the elongated body between the proximal end and the distal end;

an elongated distal guide tube attached to and extending distally from the distal end of the elongated body;

a sliding inserter movably connected to the elongated body such that the slidable inserter is configured to move between the proximal end and the distal end of the elongated body;

a first channel extending from the proximal end to the distal end of the elongated body;

a second channel extending from the distal end to a position between the distal end and the proximal end along the elongated body, the second channel extending at an angle relative to the first channel; and

a convergence area at the distal end where the first channel and the second channel intersect.

2. The multi -barrel drill guide of claim 1, further comprising a locking mechanism configured to selectively lock the sliding inserter in place with respect to the elongated body.

3. The multi -barrel drill guide of claim 2, wherein the locking mechanism comprises an opening in the sliding inserter selectively aligned with an opening in the elongated body extending to the second channel.

4. The multi -barrel drill guide of claim 1, wherein the convergence area extends to a single exit point.

5. The multi -barrel drill guide of claim 4, wherein the single exit point is at a distal end of the elongated distal guide tube.

6. The drill guide of claim 1, further comprising a portion of the second channel which extends at an angle relative to the longitudinal axis different from the remainder of the second channel.

7. The multi -barrel drill guide system of claim 1, wherein the second channel curves in a direction away the handle.

8. The multi-barrel drill guide of claim 1, further comprising a slit in the exterior of the elongated body extending into the first channel.

9. A multi-barrel drill guide system, comprising:

an elongated body extending along a longitudinal axis having a proximal end and a distal end with a handle extending from the elongated body between the proximal end and the distal end;

an elongated distal guide tube attached to and extending distally from the distal end of the elongated body;

a sliding inserter movably connected to the elongated body such that the slidable inserter is configured to move between the proximal end and the distal end of the elongated body;

a first channel extending from the proximal end to the distal end; a second channel extending from the distal end to a position between the distal end and the proximal end along the elongated body, the second channel at an angle relative to the first channel; and

a suture anchor fully positioned within and movable in a slidable manner within the first channel; and

a drill bit movable in a slidable manner within the second channel.

10. The multi -barrel drill guide system of claim 9, wherein the suture anchor is loaded onto a driver, which is movable in a slidable manner within the first channel.

11. The multi-barrel drill guide system of claim 9, further comprising a locking mechanism configured to selectively lock the sliding inserter in place with respect to the elongated body.

12. The multi-barrel drill guide system of claim 11, comprises an opening in the sliding inserter selectively aligned with an opening in the elongated body extending to the second channel.

13. The multi -barrel drill guide system of claim 12, wherein in the locked position, the drill bit extends through the opening of the sliding inserter and the opening in the elongated body into the second channel.

14. The multi-barrel drill guide system of claim 10, further comprising a shallow deployment button hingedly connected within a recess on the elongated body.

15. The multi-barrel drill guide system of claim 14, wherein the driver is connected to the sliding inserter and sliding the driver distally along the first channel rotates the shallow deployment button away from the recess.

16. The multi -barrel drill guide system of claim 9, further comprising a bent portion of the second channel which extends at an angle relative to the longitudinal axis different from a remainder of the second channel.

17. The multi -barrel drill guide system of claim 9, wherein the second channel curves in a direction away the handle.

18. A method of drilling a pilot hole and inserting a suture anchor, the method comprising the steps of:

providing a multi-barrel drill guide and anchor deployment assembly with an elongated body extending along a longitudinal axis having a proximal end and a distal end with a handle extending from the elongated body between the proximal end and the distal end, and an elongated distal guide tube attached to and extending distally from the distal end of the elongated body, a sliding inserter movably connected to the elongated body such that the sliding inserter is configured to move between the proximal end and the distal end of the elongated body, a first channel extending from the proximal end to the distal end, a second channel extending from the distal end to a position between the distal end and the proximal end along the elongated body, the second channel extending at an angle relative to the first channel, and a convergence area at the distal end where the first channel and the second channel intersect;

inserting a suture anchor loaded on an anchor driver into the first channel; inserting a drill bit into an opening on the sliding inserter and an opening on elongated body, which extends into the second channel;

positioning a distal end of the distal guide tube against a bone; extending the drill bit through the second channel, the convergence area and the distal guide tube; and

drilling a pilot hole into the bone with the drill bit.

19. The method of claim 18, further comprising the steps of:

retracting the drill bit past the opening on the sliding inserter; and extending the anchor driver through the first channel and the convergence area.

20. The method of claim 19, further comprising the step of implanting the suture anchor into the pilot hole.
