Smith & Nephew launches SUTUREFIX Ultra soft suture anchor
Feb 6 15
Smith & Nephew has launched its SUTUREFIX Ultra soft suture anchor, which is indicated for use in both hip and shoulder labral repair. This new anchor's smaller size and soft construct allows surgeons to fine tune their repairs by adding additional anchors and fixation points. The SUTUREFIX Ultra soft anchor delivers higher fixation strength than other all-suture anchors currently available. Once deployed, the anchor's wavelike design provides secure and strong fixation that does not rely on bone quality for security. Its reliable deployment comes from the unique handle and safety button which provides surgeons an audible "click" when the anchor is deployed successfully. With its 1.7mm x 20mm twist drill, the SUTUREFIX Ultra anchor removes less bone than traditional fixation anchors. Each SUTUREFIX Ultra anchor comes pre-loaded on ULTRABRAID high-strength sutures to deliver the security of a strong suture with a low knot stack. The implant is made of DURABRAID suture and once implanted, leaves no hard materials behind.
