Description: Corkscrew Rotator Cuff Repair -- Burkhart Web Archive Copy Last posted 2006
The Arthrex Corkscrew Rotator Cuff Repair System offers superior pullout strength in soft bone and a simplified, reproducible technique for min-open and arthroscopic rotator cuff repairs. The Corkscrew Anchor has a unique auger type thread and a thin 2.0 mm core diameter. This provides outstanding holding strength and cancellous bone usually encountered in rotator cuff repair. The 5.0mm Corkscrew is preloaded with two #2 braided sutures to increase soft tissue fixation with fewer anchors. The Corkscrew requires no predrilling and can be inserted easily into cancellous bone by hand with the convenient preloaded handled inserter. The Corkscrew can be easily removed and leaves only a small 2mm diameter hole in the bone after removal.
