Suture Anchor for Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair

Fri, 01/23/2009 - 7:56am


The HEALIX™ BR Dual Threaded Anchor System is a suture anchor for arthroscopic rotator cuff repair that utilizes Depuy Mitek's proprietary BIOCRYL® RAPIDE™ biocomposite material, which is shown in pre-clinical trials to resorb and promote bone formation within the implant profile. HEALIX BR is an extension of the successful HEALIX™ PEEK family of anchors. Both anchors are designed to independently engage cortical and cancellous bone, maximizing pull-out strength and potentially minimizing re-tears. HEALIX anchors are available in three sizes (4.5-mm, 5.5-mm and 6.5-mm) to address a wide variety of surgical techniques, and may be pre-loaded with ORTHOCORD®, the company's high-strength suture.
