Product Information

Address the emerging treatments for the peritrochanteric space – including arthroscopic abductor repair, bursectomy, and iliotibial band (ITB) release with hip repair tools from Smith & Nephew.



Arthroscopic Abductor Repair
Shown to successfully treat pain and restore strength to the gluteus medius muscle1, arthroscopic abductor repair is the new frontier in arthroscopic hip joint repair. HEALICOIL, TWINFIX, Ultra2 and FOOTPRINT, Ultra Suture Anchors provide a range of anchor constructs, materials, sizes and suture configurations for double- or single-row fixation techniques.  


 

Abductor Repair, Single-row Technique

HEALICOIL PK Suture Anchor
Smith & Nephew’s HEALICOIL PK Suture Anchor differs from conventional solid-core implants by eliminating the inner diameter material while still providing excellent fixation security3. As demonstrated in an ovine study, the unique open architecture of the HEALICOIL PK Suture Anchor allows for new bone to fill the fenestrations between threads and into the central anchor channel. The HEALICOIL contained 63% of the bone volume of control bone by 12 weeks post-implantation in sheep.4, 5 Open architecture allows for:

  • Bony ingrowth as shown in ovine study
  • Less material than solid-core anchors
  • High torsional strength
  • Strong fixation with less material
  • Proven biocompatibility from Invibio® PEEK-OPTIMA® Polymer

TWINFIX Ultra2 Suture Anchors
The TWINFIX Ultra family of suture anchors provides the fixation strength and security you’ve come to know and trust, along with versatile materials and hole-preparation options.

Security and Strength:

  • Transitional thread design provides secure fixation for greater pull-out strength, even in poor bone quality.6
  • ULTRABRAID, high-strength suture allows for superior knot strength and a low-profile knot stack.7
  • Internal driver supports anchor to optimize force transfer during insertion into all qualities of bone
  • Different hole-preparation choices are available for a variety of bone qualities.  


Bony Bed Preparation

DYONICS Hip High Visibility Burrs

  • Outer sheath with narrow neck improves visualization of anatomical landmarks.
  • Rounded sheath edges help minimize damage to surrounding tissues.


Abductor Repair, Double-row Technique

FOOTPRINT Ultra Suture Anchor

Coupled with TWINFIX Ultra2 and/or HEALICOIL PK Suture Anchors in the proximal row, the FOOTPRINT Ultra Suture provides security and precise tensioning after implantation at the distal row site for double row suture bridging techniques.8

Independent Suture Tensioning:

  • Knotless fixation construct gives surgeons the ability to tension suture after anchor implantation. With a torque limiting handle, the FOOTPRINT provides a positive “stop” to drive the inner plug a specific distance, confirming suture is secured within the anchor body. Easy to use and reliable:
  • Anchor insertion is made easy by the exclusive tap-in anchor design.8
  • Exclusive tap-in anchor with barbed geometry provides optimal pullout strength and easy insertion.8

 

 

Hip Bursectomy

DYONICS Hip Power Shaver Blades

  • Full line of extended-length curved and straight shaver blades are designed for optimal access to the hip joint for effective resection of bone and tissue.


DYONICS RF WHIRLWIND 90° Probe

  • Offers rapid and precise tissue removal and coagulation of bleeding vessels.
  • Powerful high-flow suction quickly removes resected tissue, bubbles and free-floating debris, for an unobstructed image.
  • 90º shaft angle; 3.75 mm shaft diameter; 5.5 mm minimum cannula.9


ITB Release

DYONICS RF Hook 30° Probe

  • Single, fully-exposed electrode helps achieve an aggressive, yet controllable cut.
  • Simultaneously coagulates bleeding vessels.
  • 30º shaft angle; 3.0 mm shaft diameter; 8.5 mm minimum cannula.9
