Smith & Nephew Endoscopy Launches the FOOTPRINT PK Suture Anchor for Shoulder Repair
Date:4/24/2008

in Chicago. "The suture tension can be adjusted even after the anchor is implanted."

The anchor design enables the surgeon to adjust the tension of the suture bridges, so the final fixation is set exactly as the surgeon wishes. Unlike anchors where the tension is set before anchor implantation, the surgeon knows exactly how much tension is present upon completion.

"In designing the FOOTPRINT PK Suture Anchor, our engineers listened to the concerns of surgeons who want to preserve healthy tissue, achieve optimal fixation and help their patients resume the activities they enjoy," said Mike Frazzette, President of Smith & Nephew Endoscopy. "We are pleased to showcase this device during the AANA Meeting, where we are able to demonstrate the technology to so many of our surgeon customers."
