Comparative testing by cyclic loading of rotator cuff suture anchors containing multiple high-strength sutures.

Abstract

PURPOSE To compare isolated medial-row with isolated lateral-row anchor performance by use of cyclic loading followed by destructive testing in an in vitro cadaveric model. METHODS Using 16 human cadaveric humeri without tendons, we rotated 4 medial-row (Bio-Corkscrew FT [Arthrex, Naples FL], CrossFT PK [ConMed Linvatec, Largo, FL], TwinFix PK FT [Smith… (More)
