Morphix XT® Suture Anchor

The Morphix XT® Suture Anchor is designed for the reattachment of soft tissue (tendons and ligaments) to bone in tenodesis, tendon transfer, and ligament repair procedures.

The design of the Morphix XT Suture Anchor is based on university research into anchor design and performance around the importance of bearing area under the bone in suture anchor fixation.1 Manufactured out of DJO’s proprietary shape memory PEEK Altera®, the Morphix XT Suture Anchor deploys dynamic wings with a high bearing area into the cancellous bone beneath the cortical shelf for improved device fixation.

The Proof Is In The Science

Laboratory testing has shown that traditional anchor pullout can occur under 1,000 cycles at a load less than 50% of initial pullout strength.1 The Morphix XT® Suture Anchor responds positively to cyclic loading due to its dynamic geometry and stored shape memory strain. After implantation, cyclic loading stimulates the Morphix XT Suture Anchor to attain its permanent, fully open “zero-strain” state. This results in continued wing expansion and retention of initial pullout strength.1
