Mitek Sports Medicine, a leader in orthopaedics sports medicine and a part of the DePuy Synthes Companies of Johnson & Johnson, announced the launch of the Healix Advance Knotless Anchor, a new suture anchor designed to provide optimal knotless fixation for rotator cuff repair. The Healix Advance Knotless Anchor features dual-thread technology to maximize fixation and pull-out strength in both cancellous and cortical bone, and a multi-thread design that enables fast insertion into bone. Additionally, the device eliminates the need for arthroscopic knot tying. The Healix Advance Knotless Anchors are offered in three sizes, 4.75mm, 5.5mm, and 6.5mm and are made of either Biocryl Rapide, a biocomposite material that allows absorption and boney ingrowth at the implant site, or radiolucent polyetheretherketone (PEEK), a biocompatible thermoplastic material.
