Knotless FiberTak® Soft Anchor Technique
The tensionable Knotless FiberTak soft anchor combines the benefits of soft anchors with knotless soft-tissue fixation. Curved- and straight-guide delivery systems are available with 1.8 mm drills, making this the smallest knotless anchor on the market.
Knotless SutureTak® Anchor Technique
The Knotless SutureTak anchor simplifies arthroscopic glenohumeral joint instability repair by combining a proven1 and reproducible suture anchor design and insertion procedure with knotless soft tissue fixation. The guide and drill are used to create a pilot hole precisely on the glenoid rim and the suture anchor is inserted through the guide maintaining the same portal and drill trajectory. The suture is passed and then shuttled into the locking mechanism, allowing the user to control the tension of the suture repair for knotless fixation of the soft tissue under direct visualization. This anchor may also be used in an interconnecting fashion to create bridging constructs for PASTA and remplissage repairs.
PushLock® Anchor Instability Technique
The PushLock anchor is designed for simple and secure arthroscopic glenohumeral joint instability repair. The knotless technique saves valuable time and eliminates the possibility of knot impingement. This suture-first technique allows surgeons to independently pass suture through a desired amount of tissue prior to anchor implantation. Multiple suture configurations, including simple cinch and mattress stitches, can be accomplished with FiberWire®, FiberLink® SutureTape, FiberStick™, SutureTape, or LabralTape™ sutures using the Labral Scorpion™ or QuickPass™ SutureLasso™ suture passers. Tissue tension can be visualized and adjusted, if necessary, prior to final anchor implantation.
SwiveLock® Instability Technique
The body of the anchor is available in a BioComposite material that combines PLLA with ß-TCP, or a nonabsorbable thermoplastic material, polyetheretherketone (PEEK). Both are strong, revisable and radiolucent implants. Both versions use a PEEK eyelet for superior strength during insertion to allow firm tissue tensioning and shifting.
