The ComposiTCP Suture Anchor is Zimmer Biomet’s first biocomposite, absorbable suture anchor system for securing soft tissue to bone. Made of DuoSorb®, a proprietary biocomposite material blend, these anchors are versatile and provide strong fixation.
This anchor platform offers a variety of sizes double loaded with either #2 round suture or BroadBand tape variations.
The dual channel eyelet design allows for smooth suture sliding and expedited suture management across all platforms
Seamless loading into instrumentation with 1.5mm BroadBand Tape (flat) transition into #2 MaxBraid Suture ends (round)
Reliability in bone makes anchors suitable for medial row use in double row or single row repair. The 4.5mm ComposiTCP suture anchor shows an average fixation strength of 267N in testing.1
Material made of 30% β-Tricalcium-Phosphate (β-TCP), 70% Polylactic Acid (PLDL) mix is a balance of strength and elasticity similar to cortical bone.1
