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.
