allograFt FOR rotator cuff repair
Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) with backscatter electrons
An interconnective porous matrix that facilitates autologous bone marrow transportation from the decorticated humeral surface to the avascular tendon and mimics the anatomical transition from soft to rigid tissue.
Demineralized, highly porous collagenous bone that promotes soft tissue integration at the tendon-graft interface and a mineralized cancellous contact layer that stimulates osteointegration at the bone-graft interface within a single allograft embodiment.

Sharpey Fiber Formation and Enthesis Restoration
Images 1, 2, 4, and 5 are enthesis sections that demonstrate the progression of Sharpey Fiber formation. As the fibers form, they progress from disorganized and randomly aligned to organized and uniformly aligned (10X magnification).
Engineered for arthroscopic repair
Instruction for Use
BioEnthesis is indicated to provide a matrix for the repair or reconstruction of the bone of the enthesis within the rotator cuff.
BioEnthesis is contraindicated for use in any patient in whom soft and hard tissue implants are contraindicated. This includes any pathology that would limit the blood supply and compromise healing, or evidence of a current infection. BioEnthesis is contraindicated where the allograft is intended as structural support in load-bearing bone, and articular cartilage surfaces.
