The MINI-VIM Ligament anchors are titanium anchors available in 2.8mm and 3.5mm diameters and come preloaded with USP #2 suture. In most cases, the implant can be manually inserted using the handled version. A drill is available for use in hard bone if desired. For arthroscopic applications, the MINI-VIM Ligament anchor can be inserted through the small diameter MINI-VIM spear eliminating the need for a cannula. This is ideal for SLAP and subscapularis repairs where a small stab incision and percutaneous delivery of the implant is preferred. MINI-VIM Ligament anchor is Screw-in anchor.
The average pull-out strength of MINI-VIM 2.8mm ligament anchor is 176N.
Key Features· Tremendous pull-out strength.
FIBERKNOT is an all suture anchor with smaller in size that does not mitigate strength. The FIBERKNOT Soft Ligament Anchor is composed of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) suture and is available in 1.5 mm (single loaded) and 1.8 mm (double loaded) sizes. FIBERKNOT requires a smaller pilot hole compared to traditional anchors, minimizing bone removal and decreasing the overall anchor footprint, while still providing superior strength. The FIBERKNOT anchor is available with flexible driver for easy insertion through curved sleeve. It is available in various combination of fiber and fiber tape.
The curved and straight sleeves of FIBERKNOT enable delivery around a curve and perpendicular placement for posterior SLAP and inferior Bankart repairs.
The drill ensures accurate pilot hole placement with both straight and curved sleeves.
BioFiber Tape is an ultra-high strength 2 mm width tape using a similar long chain polyethylene structure as the BioFiber suture. In addition to high demand applications like AC joint reconstruction, knotless double-row rotator cuff repair & Foot & Ankle repair surgeries. The broad footprint of the BioFiber Tape is appropriate for repairs in degenerative cuff tissue where tissue pull-through may be a concern.
BioFiber Loop is a continuous loop of BioFiber with straight needle. The needles are easy to handle and move freely on the suture to recenter themselves after passing through tissue and facilitating even tension. Graft preparation using BioFiber Loop in conjunction with the Whipstitch technique drastically reduces time spent preparing the graft, uniformly compresses the graft, improves strength and allows for last minute adjustments in graft length.
BioFiber is a braided sterile surgical fiber prepared from fibres of ultra-high molecular weight long chain linear polyethylene. BioFiber elicit a minimal of inflammatory reaction in tissues, followed by gradual encapsulation of the fiber by the fibrous tissue. BioFiber is non-absorbable and there are no significant changes in tensile strength retention known to occur in vivo. BioFiber is preloaded on many Biotek Anchors that have fibers. BioFiber represents a major advancement in arthroscopic surgery.
The AC-FIX button allows the use of multiple Biofiber tape for AC Joint reconstruction, providing a construct that as strong as current AC Joint repair devices. Since the buttons are attached with the Biofiber tape independently. Only suture material is passed through the clavicle and coracoid tunnels allowing the repair to be completed through smaller tunnel.
The VIMFIX-BT Tenodesis implants are designed for all-arthroscopic proximal biceps tenodesis. The efficient system is designed to save steps and minimize the length of the procedure. The implants feature a unique PEEK tip that is used to steer the biceps tendon to the bottom of the bone socket without the need to externalize or whipstitch the tendon. There is no need to predetermine tendon length, as position and tension are easily set and visualized prior to final anchor insertion.
Strong fixation is obtained by simply advancing the preloaded VIMFIX-BT Tenodesis Screw. The system also features Tenodesis Fluted Solid reamers with built-in guide tips that eliminate the need to ream over a guide pin. The average pull-out strength of VIMFIX-BT ligament anchor (knotless) is 470.8 N*.
The VIMFIX-LR is a fully-threaded, knotless anchor designed for use with BioFiber suture or BioFiber Tape in rotator cuff repair using the bridge techniques. It provides maximum pull-out and insertion strength while saving time. The simple knotless technique consists of passing sutures or tapes through tissue, loading them through the closed VIMFIX-LR eyelet which is then inserted into a bone socket. Tension is visualized, adjusted and locked into position with the VIMFIX-LR anchor body. VIMFIX-LR anchor is cannulated and vented to minimize material and to allow for potential bony ingrowth. The anchor is available in 4.75mm and 5.5mm diameter, and PEEK material which is a thermoplastic material with excellent biocompatibility and bio-stability characteristics.
The VIMFIX-LR is twist-in knotless anchor. The anchor is available in two variants, one is VIMFIX-LRP and other is VIMFIX-LRT. VIMFIX-LRP with a PEEK body and a PEEK eyelet. VIMFIX-LRT with a PEEK body and a metal (titanium) eyelet. The VIMFIX-LR can be used in the Knotless double-row rotator cuff repair technique.
The average pullout strength of VIMFIX-LRP 5.5mm ligament anchor is 588.7 N*, VIMFIX-LRP 4.75mm is 503.4 N*, VIMFIX-LRT 5.5mm is 646.7 N* & VIMFIX-LRT 4.75mm is 575.7 N*.
The FIBERKNOT helps overcome the traditional anchors for rotator cuff fixation methods with strong fixation, less bone removal and a simple, self-punching technique. FIBERKNOT ligament anchor Dia. 2.9mm requires a pilot hole for the insertion. The punch is specially designed for FIBERKNOT ligament anchor which provides the accurate hole placement for the anchor. The small 2.9mm footprint of FIBERKNOT ligament anchor provides placement and fixation advantages when bone real estate is limited, especially during revision surgeries.
FIBERKNOT is available in double loaded with various combination of BioFiber and BioFiber Tape.
The MINI-VIM PK Ligament anchor is available in dia of 2.8mm and 3.5mm. The MINI-VIM PK is a nonabsorbable PEEK suture anchor with a material eyelet which provides superior abrasion resistance due to PEEK''s low coefficient friction. The knotless technology of MINI-VIM PK Ligament anchor Provides a step-saving alternative to conventional "knotted" suture anchors and eliminates "knot stacks" associated with soft tissue irritation.
