Int Orthop ; Arch Surg ; This is in contrast to the traditional anchors, which failed by a combination of suture failure, anchor pull-out or eyelet breaking, consistent with what has been previously reported.

Our study showed greater than previously reported gap formation, and this is likely to be due to the specific experimental set up, though it should be noted that the consistency of the construct design and experimental procedures facilitated comparisons of gap formation in implants tested. Unlike previous studies which applied load in line with angle of insertion of the anchor, this study aimed to replicate the direction of force of the RC, which is applied in vivo.

Additional analysis of displacement was performed to determine changes in displacement differentials after the first 50 cycles to accommodate initial anchor settling. It was performed on cadaveric human humeral heads and was not representative of in vivo conditions with regard to temperature and the proximal suture-tendon interface.

Results of the surgical repair of the rotator cuff. Overall, mean maximum cionix strength values were significantly higher for the traditional anchor Reported displacement in our paper, as in previous studies, is not constrained to movement of the anchor underneath the cortex, but of the whole construct, including the suture material, slippage in the suture grip, and the movement of the bone within the platform although this was minimal.


As a result, findings from this study cannot be directly compared with other work, especially where direct axial loading was performed. Mechanical stryier of absorbable suture anchors.

The humerus was isolated from the distal upper limb 10 cm below its surgical neck. Previous studies have endeavoured to look into the mechanical properties of all-suture anchors and compare these with traditional bone anchors. Between 50 and cycles, the JuggerKnot demonstrated the greatest mean displacement This article has been cited by other articles in PMC.

Mechanical properties of all-suture anchors for rotator cuff repair

Fatigue testing of suture anchors. Moreover, all strykrr demonstrated significant displacement between 0 and 50 cycles range 6. Cyclical loading using a previously published protocol to simulate the rehabilitation phase of post-rotator cuff tendon repair 12 was used see supplementary material.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg ; All described anchors are indicated for both open and arthroscopic RC repair. Otherwise, there was no significant variation between displacement values of the anchors. On the other hand, traditional anchors were found to maintain the initial drill tunnel size. Mean displacement differential values and standard error se mm of tested anchors between 50 cycles and: They also found that traditional anchors required significantly higher loads to achieve 2 mm of labral displacement than did all-suture anchors Cyclic loading strgker analysis of the pullout strengths of rotator cuff and glenoid anchors: Due to their smaller size, a greater number of all-suture anchors can be placed in the same area of bone, allowing for greater strength of fixation and decreased gap formation.

Results Overall, mean maximum tensile strength values were significantly higher for the traditional anchor However, a unidirectional tensile force through multiple sutures remains incompletely representative of multi-suture cuff repairs in which sutures exert multidirectional tension on the anchor. Pull-out strength of suture anchors for rotator cuff and Bankart lesion repairs.


Although this test is not wholly representative of implant performance, the findings can guide clinicians as to implant choice with regard to the mechanical properties of all-suture anchors. Clin Biomech Bristol, Avon ; Failure mechanism Experimental constructs failed by a variety of mechanisms, with the majority of all-suture anchors failing by anchor pull-out, whereby anchor integrity was maintained. The drill is subsequently removed and replaced with the Q-FIX implant strykre which goes into the guide.

Abstract Objectives All-suture anchors are increasingly used in rotator cuff repair procedures. Please review our privacy policy. Complications of Biodegradable Materials: A 3 mm drill bit is placed through the drill guide to breach the cortex and create a bone hole — this is terminated when the drill bottoms onto the guide and no further progress can be made. With regard to gap formation of the construct, we found that the plastic control anchor had a mean total displacement of The null hypothesis of the study was that the mechanical properties and failure mode of novel commercial all-suture anchors would be the same as those of a traditional bone anchor.
