Additional Product Information
In very soft metaphyseal bone the surgeon may opt to only predrill a minimum depth to penetrate the cortical bone shell.
Surgeons using large diameter, braided suture materials may find the application of bone wax to frayed ends will simplify passing suture material through the eyelet of a bone anchor. While 2.7 mm suture anchors will accept very large suture, these small implants are most commonly used with size #0 and #2 suture.
4.0 mm and 4.7 mm suture anchors have a square drive-head to simplify application and are approximately 2.0 mm in height. The 2.7 mm suture anchor's drive-head is approximately 2.4 mm in height and elliptical to fit a slotted driver designed for retaining suture prior to application.
