Suture Anchor Length
A threaded suture anchor is machined into the tip of a trochar pin.
Immediately proximal to the suture anchor is a narrow break off point.
The construct is stable during axial drilling of the pin into bone. Once in
position with the hole of the anchor just above the surface of the bone
the shaft of the pin is rocked to and fro. The stainless steel undergoes
work hardening and becomes very brittle, ultimately breaking off leaving
the anchor in postion ready for placement of sutures. The suture anchor
pin is extremely easy to postion and place without pre-d
