Smith & Nephew Introduces Advanced Biocomposite Material for Use in Arthroscopic Surgery
Date:11/7/2013

LONDON, Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Smith & Nephew (NYSE: SNN;LSE:SN), the global medical technology business, announced the US launch of the HEALICOIL™ REGENESORB Suture Anchor at today's Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA) Fall Course in Las Vegas. Building on the success of the innovative HEALICOIL PK design, this new suture anchor is the first device to use the company's proprietary REGENESORB material – an advanced biocomposite that has been shown in pre-clinical studies to be absorbed and replaced by bone within 24 months.[i]

"The HEALICOIL REGENESORB Suture Anchor is a perfect marriage of implant design and material," says orthopaedic surgeon, Scott Trenhaile, Clinical Assistant Professor of Surgery, University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford. "Within this one implant, I get the bone ingrowth and mechanical strengths of the original HEALICOIL, as well as the bioabsorption advantages that come from gradually transferring the stresses to the healing bone as the anchor is steadily absorbed."

Most biocomposite implants utilize the osteoconductive properties of beta tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) to provide 18 months of sustained bone formation.[ii] While this is effective in creating a "scaffold" for enhancing new bone formation,[iii] REGENESORB goes one step further by adding a second osteoconductive component, calcium sulfate. Calcium sulfate has been shown to work in the early stages of bone healing and is associated with increased levels of local growth factors.[iv]
