The CuffMend™ system provides an efficient, simplified approach for augmenting partial- and full-thickness rotator cuff tears. The system employs the benefits of a 1 mm-thick ArthroFlex dermal allograft, which provides mechanical strength and supports healing.1,2 Introduce the graft using the graft spreader and use TissueTak™ tendon anchors for medial soft-tissue fixation to the rotator cuff tendon. Use PushLock® anchors, spanning the graft over the tuberosity footprint, for lateral bony fixation. Implantation of the CuffMend system is designed to be completed in <10 minutes of surgical time. Scientific literature supports the use of acellular dermal grafts as a safe and effective solution for rotator cuff augmentation.3
