Rotium® Bioresorbable Wick

Atreon Orthopedics Rotium Bio Resorbable Wick

Improving Rotator Cuff Repair

ROTIUM is an interpositional wick placed at the tendon-bone interface designed to supercharge the biologic environment for support of the healing cascade and improvement in long-term outcomes after rotator cuff repair

The Biologic Challenge

An unhealthy restoration of the tendon-bone interface (i.e. enthesis) is associated with scar tissue formation which may increase the chance of biologic failure, inferior healing or inconsistent functional outcomes.

An Autobiologic Solution

The combination of ROTIUM’s biomimetic matrix and its unique surgical placement between the rotator cuff tendon and the bone allows the scaffold to wick and hold the patient’s own active biology directly at the repair site. It is engineered to harness inflammation and encourage scarless healing with strong tissue integration and remodeling of a functional enthesis.
