Mitek GRYPHON Suture Anchor™
The Mitek GRYPHON Suture Anchor™ was specifically designed to be used for reattachment of glenoid labrum to bone. The anchor is constructed of BIOCRYL RAPIDE®, which demonstrates predictable resorption and bony ingrowth. It comes in a thread-in option to allow for tactile feedback during insertion, or a push-in option, which offers 15% greater pull-out strength when compared to similar anchors.
Preloaded with ORTHOCORD, the suture itself has 55 lbs. of tensile strength and is 45% less stiff than Fiberwire®. Finally, the anchor itself is cannulated, to allow for blood to channel to the surface to aid in local healing.
