Stryker has introduced its new Citrefix suture anchor system featuring Citregen biometrics for foot and ankle surgical procedures.

Citregen is a bioresorbable elastomeric material made from a citrate polymer that specifically mimics the structure and chemistry of native bone and aids resorption while reducing chronic inflammation.

The Citrefix Disposable Sensitive Anchorage System consists of a reproducible biomimetic anchorage component.

Michael Rankin, Stryker Foot and Ankle’s vice president of business marketing and medical education, said: “Our customers will benefit from the proliferation of cutting-edge bioresorbable materials for use in foot and ankle procedures.

“Citrefix’s unique suture anchor system is the next step in the Citregen portfolio.”

According to Stricker, the special chemical and mechanical properties of the device help to heal damaged tissue and grow healthy bone when used in orthopedics.

The cleanly packaged set includes a pre-loaded drill and eye cartridge, as well as a drill guide, drill bit and pre-installed insert.

“Using the unique material properties of Citregen, CitreFix introduces design features that significantly increase its traction strength compared to other wool anchors,” said Wayne Berberian, Orthopedic Surgeon at the Ankle and Foot Institute.

The Citrefix suture anchor system follows Citreloc’s launch last September and represents the second product in the company’s expanding portfolio of products made using Citregen material.

The Citrelock Tendon Fixation Device System is designed to prevent mass degeneration and chronic inflammation.

It provides surgeons with a strength similar to cortical bone and a modulus similar to cancellous bone.

Stryker expects to launch more products next year.
