Project Description

Tendon Anchor System

Soft tissue attachment simplified.

System Overview

The BioPro Tendon Anchor System (T.A.S.) is a toothed, titanium anchor designed for soft tissue reattachment to bone. The sutureless design simplifies soft tissue reattachment and allows for increased pull-out strength.1

Clinical Benefits

No Suture Required

The screw + washer interface eliminates the most common mode of failure with traditional attachment methods; the tendon-suture interface.2 The self-drilling + self-tapping screw design allows for easy application, reducing overall procedure time.

Improved Pull-Out Strength

The anchors feature 2mm staggard teeth that engage multiple fiber bundles to provide ~3x pull-out strength of traditional suture anchors.1 The blunt teeth are designed not to penetrate bone, preventing tendon over compression.

Low Profile

The low profile design of the anchor features recessed screw holes, allowing the screw head to sit flush with the anchor, preventing implant prominence.
