The Rotium™ Bioresorbable Wick is comprised of biodegradable polymer nanofibers that replicate the structure of the native extracellular matrix and completely resorbs after 3-4 months. The nanofibers act as a scaffold that support cellular ingrowth and facilitate healthy tissue regrowth, such as Sharpey fibers. Traditional rotator cuff repair results in high levels of scar tissue at the bone-tendon interface, resulting in weaker connection of the tendon to the bone. The Rotium™ Wick supports and encourages the regeneration of healthy tendon at the bone-tendon interface.
Rotium™ is FDA indicated to be used in conjunction with over 40 commonly used anchors. Similar products on the market only have one suture anchor product configuration.
Ease of use allows for incorporation into existing repair techniques without adding time
No change is required in placement configuration for existing anchors or procedures. Furthermore, no special instrumentation is required.
Can be used in open or arthroscopic procedures.
The Rotium™ Wick provides over 9 times the surface area coverage than a comparable product, with a surface area of 400 sq. mm.
Rotium™ provides optimum coverage of the supraspinatus footprint of 368sq. mm.
Rotium™ benefits patients, surgeons, and insurers by providing a lower overall cost per procedure than comparable products while offering greater benefits, such as increased wick retention and strength. Alternative scaffold products cost upwards of $3,500, 10X the cost of Rotium™ per procedure.
SYNTHETIC RESORBABLE GRAFT:
No significant procedural changes in rotator cuff repair
Engineered to promote cell migration and aid the healing process
