Displacement values mm of tested anchors. Viscoelastic properties of common suture material used for rotator cuff repair and arthroscopic procedures. Furthermore, studies have shown the maximum tensile strength of anchors to range from 49 N to 66 N in one paper, 8 to N in another, 5 highlighting the need for a comprehensive evaluation of all commercially available all-suture anchors in comparison with traditional anchors.

Biomechanical comparison of traditional anchors to all-suture anchors in a double-row rotator cuff repair cadaver model. However, there is limited published evidence for the relative strength of fixation for all-suture anchors compared with traditional anchors.

Designed the study, Performed experiments, Subsequent data analysis, Drafted the paper. The outcome and repair integrity of completely arthroscopically repaired large and massive rotator cuff tears. Results Overall, mean maximum tensile strength values were significantly higher for the traditional anchor All suture strands are then pulled and the anchor is compressed against the cortical bone.

In the context of traditional anchors, early post-operative anchor movement is a relatively rare complication, reported as 0. The JuggerKnot anchor did have significantly greater displacement over control anchors at and cycles 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, iconox in the suture grip, and the movement of the bone within the platform although this was minimal.

This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. ICONIX anchors did not reach cycles and Q-FIX anchors did not reach cycles, therefore data are not included; standard error se at cycles is not described for all anchors as anchors failed before this point.

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. Studied anchor n Mean displacement differential between 50 and cycles, mm se Mean displacement differential between 50 and cycles, mm se Mean displacement differential between 50 cycles and failure, mm se ConMed New York, New York Y-Knot RC 5 6. With regard to gap formation of the construct, we found that the plastic control anchor had a mean total displacement of Early anchor displacement after arthroscopic rotator styker repair.

The study found that the load-to-failure was lower and displacement was significantly greater in some all-suture anchors compared with a control traditional anchor.

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 icnix been previously reported. All four types of commercially available all-suture anchors and one traditional plastic anchor were obtained from the manufacturers.

Bone Joint Res ;6: They also found that traditional anchors required significantly higher loads to achieve 2 mm of labral displacement than did all-suture anchors The histologic and biomechanical response of two commercially available small glenoid anchors for use in labral repairs.


All-suture anchors were found to have lower failure loads compared with a commonly used, traditional anchor.

Despite this, recent work from Pfeiffer et al 9 suggests that, within a canine model, an all-suture anchors promote strykr formation secondary to foreign-body reaction, with resulting expansion of the initial drill tunnel.

A biomechanical evaluation of suture anchors in repair of the rotator cuff.

Mechanical properties of all-suture anchors for rotator cuff repair

Abstract Objectives All-suture anchors are increasingly used in rotator cuff repair procedures. Of note, the anchors in the current study had a variety of failure mechanisms, typifying the difference in construction between all-suture and traditional anchors Table I. The suture threads emerging from icconix humeral head were secured icobix the upper clamps of the rig, with no recorded failure in any repeats at the suture-vice interface Fig. The humeral heads were dissected from cadaveric donors and overlying soft-tissue was debrided to expose the bone surface over the greater tuberosity.

Between 50 and cycles, the JuggerKnot demonstrated the greatest mean displacement Gap formation of construct Displacement, after initial application of load, was recorded during cyclic loading.
