MICRORAPTOR Knotless

Suture Anchor

Overview


The MICRORAPTOR Knotless Suture Anchor addresses the current lack of off-axis insertion capabilities for knotless repairs. With its improved off-axis insertion performance1, when compared to other commercially available biocomposite knotless anchors, as well as its full-length inserter and rigid implant design, the MICRORAPTOR Knotless Suture Anchor gives surgeons increased access to previously difficult areas in the shouler and hip.

Features, when compared to competitive suture anchors, include:

  • less volume3 
  • shorter length3
  • superior strength*2 

See brochure for details.




A smooth suture tape

MINITAPE

 

 



MINITAPE is a smooth suture tape offering a significantly lower and more evenly distributed level of pressure. *12

MINITAPE Suture is conveniently available in single packs or on MICRORAPTOR Knotless Suture Anchors.

REGENESORB Material

REGENESORB Material

Smith & Nephew REGENESORB material is designed to remain mechanically stable for a minimum of six months before being absorbed and replaced by bone within 24 months.*9

Most biocomposite materials rely solely on the osteoconductive properties of ß-TCP, which provides sustained bone formation over 18 months6 and acts primarily as a scaffold for enhancing new bone formation.11 REGENESORB material includes a second osteoconductive material, calcium sulfate, which has been shown to work in the early stages (4-12 weeks) of bone healing 6. REGENESORB material contains two osteoconductive components – ß-TCP and calcium sulfate – which act during different stages in the bone healing process and through different mechanisms of action, physical and biochemical. REGENESORB material is unique in this regard.

No other biocomposite material can claim this.
