MICRORAPTOR REGENESORB

Suture Anchor

Overview

Shape, Size and Strength

Compact size
The small diameter (2mm area) allows you to place multiple anchors for increased points of fixation which contribute to a secure repair.

Unique rectangular shape
Anchor tapers toward the distal tip increasing points of fixation

Microraptor shape image
 
High pull-out strength
Pull-out strength is significantly higher than competitive anchors (p-value <0.05).

Shallow drill depth
A 15mm drill depth - shorter than competitor anchors8

REGENESORB Material

REGENESORB Material

A micro-class anchor with a shallow drill depth that can be completely absorbed and replaced by bone in 24 months1 while providing a solid finished construct.

Regenesorb Material Image

REGENESORB material uses a novel poly (PLGA) based biocomposite material that contains ß-tricalcium phosphate (ß-TCP) and calcium sulfate, both previously demonstrated to be osteoconductive.3-6

Ongoing efforts to further improve suture anchors include modifying their design and composition, thereby enhancing biological healing, bone formation, and repair strength in order to facilitate improved clinical outcomes. 2

Hip Access and Indications

Hip Access & Indications

Access
The Curved Guide System improves access to challenging hip pathology.

Microraptor curved drill

With the most accurate curved drill guide amongst competitors, the MICRORAPTOR REGENESORB Curved Drill Guide improves access and trajectory when drilling. Coupled with the shortest drill depth among micro-class suture anchors, the risk of articular surface perforation, bicortical perforation, and converging tunnels may be reduced.3

Universal tactile and visual cues
The Curved Drill Guide has intuitive visual and tactile cues that facilitate drill guide positioning and anchor placement.

  • Posterior laser Mark helps with orientation, while the cresent-shaped laser mark indicated the orientation of the curvature.

Microraptor access

  • An “orientation bump” provides tactile feedback that corresponds with the direction of the curve.

Indications for Use
MICRORAPTOR REGENESORB Suture Anchors are intended to be used for
soft tissue to bone fixation for Hip: Acetabular labral repair or reconstruction.

For hip labral repair, the Curved Drill Guide is designed to provide improved access to the acetabular rim when compared to traditional straight instruments. It allows for the anchor to be positioned closer to the articular side of the acetabular rim, with less risk for penetration of the articular cartilage when compared to straight delivery systems.

Indications for Use
MICRORAPTOR REGENESORB Suture Anchors are intended to be used for
soft tissue to bone fixation for:

  • Shoulder: Capsular Stabilization including Bankart repair; anterior instability; SLAP lesion repair; capsular shift; biceps tenodesis.

 

Shoulder
For shoulder applications, the Curved Drill Guide allows anchors to be placed confidently in the inferior aspect of the glenoid. And because of the curve design, the risk of bicortical perforation is reduced.
