SpeedFix, a push-in anchor made of PEEK (polyether-etherketone) polymer, is designed for the repair of certain tears of the labrum in a shoulder.

SpeedFix anchors, which are double-loaded with ArthroCare’s high-strength MagnumWire suture, provide surgeons with independent bone locking, suture tensioning and suture locking to ensure tissues are securely attached to the glenoid, ArthroCare said.

SpeedFix is expected to complement ArthroCare’s broad line of suture anchors and ArthroCare’s suture passing technology, including FirstPass.
