Abstract

See full text

Disclosed are composite implantable tissue attachment devices comprising a mechanical reinforcing component and a cellular scaffold component. Disclosed devices include a wide, relatively flat portion for supporting long term repair of tissue. Disclosed devices can include a tapered portion at the end of the wide portions that can lead into a narrower elongated extension for aiding in placement of the device during a surgical procedure. The wide portion of the device can provide tensile strength along the longitudinal axis of the device as well as porosity. The wide devices can cover a larger surface area of a delivery site than standard suture. Disclosed materials can be utilized in, e.g., soft tissue repair such as tendon and ligament reconstruction and repair.
