Project Description

Tendon anchor System

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

T.A.S. Technology

  • Based on 30 years of clinical use*
  • Engages multiple fiber bundles to provide 3x pull-out strength1
  • Low profile anchors prevent prominence
  • Provides ideal and consistent compression

No suture required

  • Eliminates the most common mode of failure; tendon-suture interface2
  • Reduces procedure time by up to 20 minutes†
  • No drilling necessary
  • Secured via 3.0mm cancellous bone screw(s)
