The Dynacord suture, available on Healix Advance anchors, is part of the DePuy Synthes Mitek Sports Medicine portfolio. J&J launched Dynacord today at the San Diego Shoulder Institute’s 35th Annual Course.
About a fifth of arthroscopic rotator cuff surgeries fail because of a loss of suture tension, which causes gaps to form in the tissue or between the tissue and bone, according to J&J. The Dynacord suture is meant to help solve the problem because it shortens when tension is lost — maintaining strong tissue to bone compression (also called approximation) through the healing period.
