REGENETEN Bioinductive Implant
Changing the course of rotator cuff repair

Rotator cuff disease is a significant and costly problem2-4 that causes ongoing pain and limits patients’ mobility.5 Progressive in nature, small tears tend to grow in size and severity over time, eventually requiring surgery.1-3

  • Up to 80% of partial-thickness tears increase in size within 2 years6
  • Untreated rotator cuff tendinosis can progress to a partial - or full-thickness tear7
  • Larger tears requiring surgery tend to re-tear over 40% of the time8-10


REGENETEN Bioinductive Implant
Now you can disrupt rotator cuff disease progression biologically1

The REGENETEN Bioinductive Implant stimulates the body’s natural healing response to support new tendon growth and disrupt disease progression.1,2 Derived from highly purified bovine Achilles tendon, it creates an environment that is conducive to healing.1,2

Biologically improve healing

  • Proprietary, highly porous implant design facilitates the formation of new tendon-like tissue1,2
  • New tissue reduces the peak strain at the site of the tear11
  • Gradually absorbs within 6 months and leaves a layer of new tendon-like tissue to biologically augment the existing tendon 12

Proven Results, Positive Outcomes 1*

Demonstrated clinical efficacy 1

  • Induction of new tendon-like tissue in all patients (N=33)
  • Mean increase of tendon thickness of 2.2 mm (P < 0.0001) at 3 months
  • Reduction in defect size of at least 1 grade†

Excellent safety profile1

  • No foreign body/inflammatory reaction
  • No implant-related complications

Impressive patient outcomes1

  • High patient satisfaction (94%) after 1 year
  • Rapid recovery: average 23 days of sling time
  • Significantly improved ASES pain score at 1 year (P < 0.0001)‡

*Results from a prospective multi-center study of patients with partial-thickness tears. Patients had chronic, degenerative, intermediate grade (n=12) or high grade (n=21) partial-thickness tears of the supraspinatus tendon. The REGENETEN Bioinductive Implant was attached following arthroscopic subacromial decompression without repair. Clinical outcomes were assessed pre-op and at 3 and 12 months post-op using American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) and Constant-Murley (CM) scores. Post-op tendon healing and thickness was assessed with MRI.

†In 31 (94%) patients over 12 months.

‡ASES pain score improved from 4.2 ± 0.4 standard error of mean (SEM) at baseline to 0.6 ± 0.2 (SEM) at 1 year.
