The suture anchor is fixation devices used to fix ligament or tendon to bones. The suturing technique is used for thousands of years as a method of repairing tissue wounds. The technique and material used in suturing have evolved resulting in the better strengthening and healing of wounds. The postoperative appearance of the wound entirely depends on upon the correct technique performed and executed. The poor incision to skin, inadequate damage or excessive removal of skin or tissue results in a limited option of wound closure. The choice of suture technique depends on location of the wound, type of skin, degree of tension and desired appearance
Suture anchors can be used for many different surgeries, which requires fixation of tissue to bone. It forms a junction between the bone and the suture material, in which anchor to suture is used to fix soft tissues to bones. This device can also be utilized for a different application such as bladder neck suspension but is mainly used for shoulders. They also have great value in treating reconstruction of the rotator cuff, arthroscopic surgery, acetabular labrum defects and breakage in tendon biceps. The cost of these devices in the market has encouraged production of different type of anchor with various material, shape, size, mechanism and indication. The removal of dead skin, repairing the natural contour and minimum scar in the body is also an important factor to be considered for results.
