All-Suture Anchor

Q-FIX All-Suture Anchor

Overview

The Q-FIX All-Suture Anchor is the next generation of all-suture anchor technology and is now available with a curved guide system. Providing the benefits of a small, soft anchor with the characteristics of traditional anchor designs, the Q-FIX All-Suture Anchor is a radially expanding anchor that offers: 


Consistent deployment 1,2,3

 1/2017

The Q-Fix All-Suture Anchor is designed to provide consistent deployment due to the radially expanding implant design and unique delivery system. During anchor deployment, the distal tip of the inserter functions as a knot pusher against the anchor body, independent of the cortical layer. The sutures are then pre-tensioned to approximately 140 newtons5 to complete anchor deployment and remove any suture laxity.



Low Displacement 4,5

 

The unique design and deployent mechanism of the Q-FIX All-Suture Anchor provides best-in-class performance, with regard to the deplacement during cyclic loading. The deployment of the anchor against the inserter shaft and the tensioning of the sutures to approximately 140 newtons ensures the least displacement of any all-suture anchor.1

 

Compact Size

The Q-FIX platform offers compact 1.8mm (single-loaded) or 2.8mm (double-loaded) anchor sizes. The new Q-FIX MINI Suture Anchor minimizes bone removal by shortening the drill tunnel depth by 5mm. This new drill depth of 17.1mm is approximately 23% shorter than the existing Q-FIX 1.8mm anchor.


High Fixation Strength 2,3,4

The Q-FIX All-Suture Anchor provides superior fixation properties when compared to the BIORAPTOR* 2.3 PK Suture Anchor as well as other commercially available all-suture anchors
