What Surgery is The Non-absorbable Suture Anchor Used For?

Author: admin / 2023-02-24

The Non-absorbable Suture Anchor is a medical device used in orthopedic surgeries to secure soft tissue to bone. It is typically made of non-absorbable material, such as titanium, stainless steel, or PEEK (polyetheretherketone), and is designed to be implanted permanently in the body.

The suture anchor consists of two main parts: the anchor body and the suture thread. The anchor body is inserted into the bone and provides a stable base for the suture thread. The suture thread is then passed through the soft tissue and tied to the anchor, securing the tissue to the bone.

Non-absorbable suture anchors are commonly used in procedures such as rotator cuff repair, labral repair, and ligament reconstruction. They are preferred over absorbable anchors in cases where a permanent fixation is required or when the patient has a history of failed anchor surgery with absorbent.

Non-absorbable suture anchors can provide excellent fixation strength and long-term stability, but they do carry some risks, such as anchor migration, anchor failure, and tissue damage. These risks are typically minimized through proper surgical technique and patient selection.
