Suture Anchor and Guide System for Shoulder



The BIORAPTOR CURVED and OSTEORAPTOR CURVED Suture Anchors and Guide System are designed specifically to manage the surgical challenges of arthroscopic shoulder instability repair.

Optimal Anchor Placement

  • Curved Drill Guides with a 25º distal bend improve the trajectory of drilling and optimize anchor placement in the glenoid.1
  • Internal structures are better protected, as the Curved Drill Guides angle the Flexible Twist Drill and anchor into bone and away from the surface.1
  • Flexible Twist Drill and Flexible Anchor Inserters help ensure predictable trajectory and control over anchor insertion.1

Increased Access

  • Anchors can be placed confidently in the most inferior aspect of the glenoid, without the need to compromise the subscapularis tendon.2
  • The Curved Guide System removes the need to create additional working portals to access the repair site of a SLAP lesion.2

Suture Anchor Stability

  • BIORAPTOR Curved 2.3 PK Suture Anchors are made with radiolucent high-strength PEEK-OPTIMA® polymer from Invibio®.
  • OSTEORAPTOR Curved 2.3 PLLA/HA Suture Anchors incorporate the natural biocompatibility of hydroxyapatite (HA), a calcium phosphate similar to the mineral found in bone.

Suture Passing Precision

  • ACCU-PASS Suture Shuttle disposable instruments allow for precise control of suture placement and shuttle deployment.
  • Unique tip configurations offer additional flexibility in both procedure and technique.
  • Sterile, single-use instruments provide confidence in instrument’s sharpness.
