Title: TISSUE REPAIR ASSEMBLY AND SYSTEM WITH SOFT ANCHORING IMPLANT
Abstract:
Tissue repair systems which use knotless all-suture anchors (204) and have the ability to lock multiple repair sutures (222) within the anchor construct. The anchor construct includes a tension suture (220) wrapped or looped upon itself to create an open eyelet (218), through which multiple repair sutures (222) originating in soft tissue (224) are passed. The location of the eyelet (218) may be anywhere inside the all-suture anchor (204) or adjacent to the exterior of the anchor body. Tensioning of the tension suture (220) causes the eyelet (218) to restrict movement of the repair sutures (222) and secures them within or against the anchor body.
