ALLthread PEEK-Optima® Suture Anchors

Biomet Healthcare Professionals Sports Medicine ALLthread PEEK-Optima® Suture Anchors

Biomet Sports Medicine is proud to be one of the first companies to provide implants manufactured from PEEK-Optima® Polymer. This significant polymer advancement has provided benefits from both metal and resorbable technologies. PEEK-Optima® Polymer (polyetheretherketone) exhibits a optimal combination of strength, stiffness, while being radiolucent and revisable, make it ideally suited for suture anchors. PEEK is a non-resorbable, thermoplastic material that demonstrates excellent biocompatibility characteristics.

Features

  • Fully threaded to achieve additional fixation in cortical bone, maximizing resistance to pullout and displacement1
  • PEEK-Optima® Polymer exhibits an optimal combination of strength and stiffness2 while being radiolucent.
  • Loaded with MaxBraid Suture
