Bioinductive Implant


Redefining healing potential in rotator cuff repair

Stimulating a natural healing response to induce new tendon-like tissue growth and disrupt rotator cuff disease progression…across the tear spectrum1-7

The REGENTEN Bioinductive Implant, comprised of type 1 collagen,8 is an advanced healing solution for biological enhancement and tendon regeneration across all rotator cuff tear types.

As a different approach to managing rotator cuff pathology, evidence has demonstrated:

  • Clinical performance in partial-thickness, large, and massive tears1-7
  • Repair strength in the induced tissue, not the implant, and completely absorbed within six months2,9
  • Increased and sustained tendon thickness, observed up to 5 years3,4,6
  • Improved patient satisfaction,4 pain,4,5 and recovery5

Backed by a growing body of clinical evidence

Also for massive tears

Read how REGENETEN resulted in high rates of tendon healing and consistent treatment success…with no adverse implant-related incidents.1

Examining tendon thickness and integrity…

Read how REGENETEN performed at 5-year follow-up, and how it improved patient pain and function.3  

For tendinous tissue formation…

Read clinical data on tissue formation, pain, and function in patients with partial-thickness tears of the supraspinatus tendon.4

On patient pain, function, and recovery…

Read how REGENETEN achieved meaningful improvements for patients with partial and full-thickness tears, and the impact on their return to driving and sport.5

Simple arthroscopic delivery through a small incision

Comparable to conventional rotator cuff repair surgery, REGENETEN Bioinductive Implants can be delivered using arthroscopic or mini-open techniques.4,10 Watch the video below for a technique demonstration.
