Smith & Nephew Endoscopy's OSTEORAPTOR(TM) Anchor Provides Bioabsorbable Solution for Labral Tears in the Hip and Shoulder
Date:2/25/2009

rform arthroscopically because of the lack of anchors and instrumentation designed for the confines of this difficult-to-access joint capsule," said Dr. Marc Philippon of the Steadman Hawkins Clinic in Vail, Colo., and one of the world's top hip surgeons. "The OSTEORAPTOR Anchor is designed so that labral tears can be repaired more precisely and securely, which is a benefit to surgeon and patient alike."

Based on surgeon feedback, the OSTEORAPTOR Anchor system incorporates many features of the previously released BIORAPTOR(TM) Anchor line - including the implant rib design and the instrumentation used to deliver the implant. Because they are molded from bioabsorbable PLLA-HA, the anchor is invisible on x-ray and does not distort images captured using Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

"We actively engage with our surgeon customers to gain a more thorough understanding of their needs," said Alain Tranchemontagne, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Smith & Nephew Endoscopy. "The OSTEORAPTOR Anchors for hip and shoulder labral repair provide the features that our customers communicate they are looking for in a repair device, and we're pleased to bring them to market for the benefit of hip and shoulder patients worldwide."
