Suture Anchor System

Citrefix is utilized in soft tissue reconstruction procedures. Featuring a resorbable biomimetic anchor body and PEEK eyelet with a tapered and barded interference-fit design.


Key benefits

    • Made of Citregen®, a citrate-based polymer/ bioceramic composite material.1,2
    • Works in harmony with the tissues' natural healing process.1
    • Designed to mimic bone chemistry for a controlled and homogeneous resorption which prevents bulk degradation and chronic inflammation.1
    • Elastomeric properties provide strong pull-out strength in comparison to thermoplastic polymers or composites.1

The future of bioresorbables is now.

  • Citregen contains citrate, calcium, and phosphate molecules inherent to the bone anatomy.1
  • The material polymer structure mimics the extracellular matrix protein network.1
  • Citregen contains 60 wt. -% hydroxyapatite matching the native bone mineral content.1
  • Citregen releases citrate, calcium, and phosphate to the local anatomy.1
  • The remaining bioceramic construct is metabolized over time.1
  • A controlled and homogeneous resoprtion process prevents bulk degradation and chronic inflammation.1
  • The compressive strength is comparable to cortical bone with a modulus comparable to cancellous bone.1,3
  • Citregen maintains structual integrity during the healing phase, over time the implant is replaced by host tissue.1
