The LUPINE™ BR and BIOKNOTLESS™ BR first suture anchors are made from DePuy Mitek’s proprietary Biocryl Rapide biocomposite material. Biocryl Rapide has been proven in pre-clinical use to resorb and be replaced with bone by 24 months. These suture anchors offer both traditional and knotless suture anchor options for surgical attachment of soft tissue to bone during arthroscopic shoulder instability repair while maintaining proven design characteristics found in previous implants made of Polylactic Acid (PLA).
