  • Publication number: 20220079576
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a kit for augmenting a primary repair construct in an articulating joint. The kit includes a flexible member, a first implant that fixes a first end of the flexible member in a first bone adjacent to the primary repair construct and a second implant that may selectively couple to the flexible member, and thereby fix a second end of the flexible member in a second bone adjacent to the primary repair construct. The kit also includes a tension adjusting construct that may operatively couple to the flexible member and controllable adjust a tension on the flexible member disposed between the first and second implant, the tension adjustable so as to define an angle of joint articulation at which the flexible member changes from being passive to augment the primary repair construct.

  • Publication number: 20210290218
    Abstract: Anchor delivery systems include markings on the surfaces of the delivery device which are visually exposed to the user through openings or fenestrations in the anchor, providing visual feedback to the user on the progress of the anchor's insertion. A suture-locking plug is deformable within the anchor tip, thereby enhancing suture entrapment within the tip of the anchor. A compliant component of the handle places the handle components in tension, thereby absorbing built-in axial looseness in the handle. The handle further includes a spin cavity which allows for free spin of the inserter shaft to finalize insertion of the anchor into bone when the anchor has not been fully seated flush with or below the cortical bone surface.
