The HEALICOIL Suture Anchor has a distinctive open-architecture that differs from solid core implants by eliminating the material between the anchor threads. The open design allows blood and bone marrow from surrounding cancellous bone to enter the implant. The unique HEALICOIL open-architecture allows for new bone to fill the fenestrations between the threads and into the central channel by 12 weeks post-implantation, as demonstrated in a pre-clinical ovine study.
