SpeedBridge – knotless double-row rotator cuff repair

The Arthrex SpeedBridge Knotless Technique for repair of a rotator cuff tear includes fully threaded SwiveLock anchors combined with FiberTape to create a quick and secure construct with no knots and only two suture passing steps. The result is a low-profile, transosseous equivalent ‘suturebridge’ that enhances footprint compression to maximise contact between tendon and bone. The SpeedBridge technique utilises FiberTape which provides three times the contact area compared with a standard #2 suture, providing a broad compressive area and greatly reducing the risk of re-tears due to the cheesewire of suture through tendon tissue.

The SwiveLock anchor has the highest fixation strength on the market and is available in BioComposite, Bio, Titanium and PEEK options. Convenience packs are available which contain all the items required to complete the SpeedBridge repair, all in one easy-to-use, cost-saving, pre-sterile pack.
