Leeds-Kuff Patch™ – Open 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.
