The screw's tapered shape and thread pattern compress the tendon tissue against the walls of the bone tunnel, providing multiple potential attachment points.

"Smith & Nephew's innovation over the last several years has given surgeons options as they determine the best tools and techniques for repairing shoulder injuries," said Rebecca White, market manager for shoulder repair at Smith & Nephew Endoscopy. "The BICEPTOR Tenodesis System further expands our treatment portfolio. It enables surgeons to use Smith & Nephew devices from start to finish: positioning the patient, accessing the joint, visualizing and diagnosing the injury, resecting damaged soft tissue and repairing the tears."
