Bioabsorbable implant. (New Products).

Company has introduced the Suretac[R] III System, a bioabsorbable implant and the Rapid Delivery System for shoulder instability repair. These implants combine an enhanced anatomical design and increased pullout strength delivered through a Rapid Delivery System. The Suretac implant is manufactured using Polyglyconate, a patented copolymer that makes the implant more resistant to damage during insertion and provides for faster absorption by the body when its function is no longer needed for healing. The disposable Rapid Delivery System eliminates several surgical steps, saving time in the operating room, and provides the surgeon with easy access to the instruments in the event of unexpected pathologies. The guidewire driven system enables the surgeon to select the best site for implant placement. Smith & Nephews Inc., 150 Minuteman Road, Andover, MA 01810. 978-749-1000 www.endoscopy1.com
