CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES IN ABSORBABLE FIXATION

Absorbable Fixation devices can provide important benefits and lead to repeatable outcomes. However, Absorbable Fixation devices that facilitate soft tissue repair may also be associated with certain challenges, such as:

  • Excessive deployment force may cause tissue trauma and bleeding1
  • Fasteners may be difficult to see laparoscopically potentially leading to the placement of unnecessary fasteners
  • Device may be uncomfortable or awkward to deploy in smaller sized hands and may be sensitive to surgeon technique
