Leeds-Kuff Patch™ – Arthroscopic Technique

For Rotator Cuff Reinforcement

The Leeds-Kuff Patch is a permanent implant constructed from knitted polyester fabric.  It thus provides long term stability and encourages tissue ingrowth throughout the healing process.  It is available sterile in three sizes to suit varying patient anatomy, size of tear, or extent of poor quality tissue. It can be implanted using the open technique or arthroscopically.

Indications

The Leeds-Kuff Patch is indicated for patients requiring reinforcement of the rotator cuff where either the tear cannot be completely repaired using normal methods and / or the quality of the soft tissue is poor.

Features and benefits

  • Integral reinforced perimeter provides high suture retention strength
  • No need to soak before use
  • Easy to handle
  • Soft edges to reduce buckling and irritation
  • Strength and consistency; no risk of collagen rejection, donor disease transmission, variation in tissue quality, or quick degradation as associated with allografts and xenografts
  • No freezer or defrosting procedures required: readily available and easy to store, with a long shelf life
  • Cost effective in comparison with traditional tissue patches
  • Porous structure acts as a scaffold for tissue ingrowth
  • Scaffold construction provides intrinsic strength in the medial-lateral direction
  • Supplementary reinforcement across the width of the patch provides anterior-posterior stability
  • Reduces risk of excess tension being applied to the repair, which could otherwise cause failure
