Suture anchors are increasingly used to secure tendons or ligaments to bone. These devices are applicable for arthroscopic shoulder stabilization and rotator cuff repair. This study reports the in vivo characteristics of four anchors, including one absorbable anchor composed of poly-L-lactic acid. Failure strength and method of failure were recorded for these anchors as a function of time. Samples of four anchors [Mitek G2, Zimmer Statak, Acufex TAG wedge, and the absorbable Arthrex expanding… CONTINUE READING
