The Rotium™ Bioresorbable Wick is intended to be used in conjunction with suture anchors for the reattachment of tendon to bone in rotator cuff repairs. It is a non-woven, microfiber matrix comprising biodegradable polymer fibers that mimic the extracellular matrix structure. Rotium™ supports cellular infiltration and migration, and facilitates functional tissue regeneration. The Rotium™ Wick is designed to be fully absorbed within 3-4 months over which time it is replaced by neo-native tissue.
Nanofibers act as a scaffold that support cellular ingrowth and proliferation. The Rotium™ Wick supports and encourages the regeneration of healthy tendon and Sharpey fibers.
This video shows cells migrating along the scaffold material just as they would in the body. An in-vitro study against a prominent competitor showed that Rotium™ outperformed in cell proliferation and adhesion.
Rotium™ mimics the extracellular matrix found naturally in the body. Our scaffold is engineered to promote healthy tissue growth rather than an inflammatory response - thus decreasing scar tissue formation.
