We demonstrate decreased failure load, increased total displacement, and variable failure mechanisms in all-suture anchors, compared with traditional anchors designed for rotator cuff repair.

All-suture anchors are increasingly used in rotator cuff repair procedures. These findings are consistent with previously published literature in non-human specimens. Intra- strykre inter-donor variation was not determined by bone density, although reasonable attempts, such as utilising a variety of laterality of humeral heads of different aged cadavers in combination with separate anchor brands to ensure matched sample distributions, to control for this were employed.

Mechanical properties of all-suture anchors for rotator cuff repair

Discussion This study compared the mechanical properties of currently marketed commercial all-suture anchors, using a biologically representative ex vivo model, with a traditional bone anchor comparator. All four types of commercially available all-suture anchors and one traditional plastic anchor were obtained from the manufacturers. All described anchors are indicated for both open and arthroscopic RC repair. 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.

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


J Shoulder Elbow Surg ; In conclusion, this study showed that failure load, total displacement, and failure mechanism vary significantly between some all-suture anchors used for RC tear repair.

Error bars represent upper limits of standard error to demonstrate maximum displacement. Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc ; Pullout strength of all suture anchors in the repair of rotator cuff tears: Am J Sports Med ; Between 50 and cycles, the JuggerKnot demonstrated the greatest mean displacement Potential benefits include decreased bone damage.

The group found that by studying initial extension and creep static and dynamic as surrogates for initial and time-dependent gap formation, in addition to other mechanical parameters such as stiffness of the sutures, more appropriate iconlx of suture performance could be measured.

These findings are echoed by Mazzocca et al 18 iconjx found, in a glenoid labral repair model in human bone, that no difference could be demonstrated in ultimate load to failure and displacement at ultimate failure anchor pull-out between the all-suture and traditional anchors, despite greater mean values in the former group Once the soft tissue has been navigated, the obturator is removed, leaving the drill guide overlying the cortex.

ICONIX All Suture Anchor System

A biomechanical evaluation of suture anchors in repair of the rotator cuff. Open in a separate window. Displacement, after initial application of load, was recorded during cyclic loading.

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. Anchorage of sutures in the repair of rotator cuff RC tears has traditionally made use of large, screw-shaped anchors consisting of either metal or plastic polymer materials to secure sutures into bone.

In another study, an in vivo canine model developed by Pfeiffer et al 9 compared all-suture with traditional anchors and their findings corroborated with those of this study, reporting that all-suture anchors undergo greater displacement during cyclical loading at ultimate load mean Received Aug 23; Accepted Dec 8. 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.


Suture number determines strength of rotator cuff repair. The aim of this study was to compare the mechanical properties failure load and cyclic displacement and failure mechanisms of all-suture anchors with those of a traditional suture anchor in cadaveric human humeral heads. Mechanical properties of the rotator cuff: A similar pattern was found between cycles 50 andwhereby the JuggerKnot anchor had the greatest displacement National Center for Biotechnology InformationU.

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. Initially, a guide is placed over the greater tuberosity before a self-tapping 2. However, intrinsic comparisons in this work give further information to the surgeon as they consider which is the most appropriate implant for a rotator cuff repair procedure in addition to factors such as volume of bone stock removed, likely activity levels of the patient and probability of revision.

It should be noted that other sizes of ICONIX anchor are available and indicated for RC repair surgery, however, literature published by the manufacturer states that the ICONIX 3 is the strongest defined by maximum tensile strength anchor within the range.
