SutureBridge™ Double Row Technique
A transosseous equivalent SutureBridge that enhances footprint compression and may promote tendon healing-to bone can be achieved with minimal knot tying. The repair consists of a tied medial row constructed with two, fully threaded Corkscrew FT anchors, combined with knotless lateral fixation using two PushLocks or SwiveLocks. The result is a quick, secure and low profile repair with excellent contact between tendon and bone. The construct provides stability in rotation and protects a broad healing zone from synovial fluid infiltration.
2.6 FiberTak® Soft Anchor Technique
The 2.6 FiberTak soft anchors are available double- and triple-loaded with SutureTape, complemented by a guided delivery system and 2.6 mm drill or punch to help minimize bone removal. These anchors offer the benefits, clinical experience, and product support surgeons have come to appreciate from Arthrex.
Corkscrew® FT Technique
The family of fully threaded Corkscrew suture anchors was designed for maximum fixation strength and simple insertion. An internal drive mechanism is combined with a unique FiberWire® suture eyelet to allow for continuous threads along the entire length of the anchor. This design allows the anchor to be inserted flush with the cortical bone surface providing excellent fixation strength and stability while preventing the anchor pullback effect that can occur in conventional anchors with protruding eyelets. The internal drive configuration allows for high insertion torque and rarely requires the bone socket to be tapped. The suture eyelet self-aligns to eliminate the need for specific eyelet orientation at the tissue edge. The anchors are available double- or triple-loaded with FiberWire suture or SutureTape to provide the best possible combination for superior repair strength.
SpeedBridge™ Double-Row Technique
The SpeedBridge double-row technique is used to repair a rotator cuff tear using a fully threaded SwiveLock® anchor combined with FiberTape® suture to create a quick and secure construct with no knots and only two suture-passing steps. The SpeedBridge double-row technique uses FiberTape suture with three times the contact area compared to a standard #2 FiberWire® suture.1 It provides a broad footprint that can be helpful for repairs to degenerative cuff tissue for which tissue pull-through may be a concern.
