  • Patent number: 8114129
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods for repairing damaged tendons or ligaments. Various repair apparatus include an elongate tensile member and a pair of anchor assemblies connected for movement along the tensile member on either side of a repair site, such as a tear or laceration. The anchor assemblies or structures may take many forms, and may include barbed, helical, and crimp-type anchors. In the preferred embodiments, at least one anchor structure is movable along the elongate tensile member to assist with adjusting a tendon segment to an appropriate repair position and the anchor structure or structures are then lockable onto the elongate tensile member to assist with affixing the tendon at the repair position. Tendon and/or ligament-to-bone repair apparatus and methods employ similar concepts.

  • Publication number: 20070106310
    Abstract: A suture cutter assembly has a cutter blade axially reciprocable relative to a tube having at least one opening. An offset is in the tube or the cutter blade for capturing of the severed portion of the suture as the blade is advanced within the tube. A suture cutter assembly includes a recess formed in a shaft which is axially reciprocable within a tube. The recess is configured to receive at least a portion of a severed suture segment. The reception of a severed suture segment portion in the recess may reduce crimping of the severed suture segment between the shaft and the tube, thereby reducing the amount of force required to reciprocate the shaft within the tube when the severed suture segment is positioned between the shaft and the tube.
