Soft tissue reconstruction in the shoulder. Comparison of suture anchors, absorbable staples, and absorbable tacks.

Abstract

We evaluated three mechanical soft tissue fixation devices (SuperAnchor, Suretac, and the Instrument Makar [IM] Bioabsorbable Staple) in a cadaveric model by examining ultimate tensile failure and modes of failure in simulated Bankart repairs. We attempted to realistically evaluate the strengths of soft tissue reattachment procedures at the anterior glenoid… (More)
