X-Repair Product

X-Repair is specifically designed with mechanical properties that are similar to human tendon, in order to help prevent structural failure at the surgical site.


There are several areas in the body that X-Repair can be used to enhance repair.

Rotator Cuff Tear

The four muscle-tendon units of the rotator cuff surround the shoulder joint and attach the muscles of the shoulder to the upper arm (humerus), and function primarily to stabilize the shoulder joint and to provide some motion. Trauma or chronic degeneration can result in one or more tendons tearing away from the bone, resulting in pain and significant weakening of the shoulder.

Biceps Tendon

The tendons of the biceps muscle attach at the upper end to the scapula through two direct insertions, and at the lower end to the forearm (on the radial tuberosity). The large majority of the biceps tendon ruptures occur at the long head attachment to the scapula. Most of the remaining tears occur at the insertion on the radial tuberosity. The result is pain accompanied by a decrease in strength in the arm.


Dislocation of the hip after hip replacement surgery is a potential complication of the surgery. The hip joint is stabilized in part by the fibrous joint capsule, and the ligaments and tendons surrounding the joint. Hip replacement surgery, and revision surgery, requires substantial disruption of these tissues, and their repair to their anatomic position is uncertain, leaving the joint at risk of dislocation.

Quadriceps Tendon Rupture

The quadriceps tendon attaches the quadriceps muscle to the patella (knee cap), and rupture usually occurs close to the patella. A rupture results in pain and functional loss of leg extension.

Patellar Tendon Rupture

The patellar tendon attaches the quadriceps muscle to the lower leg (tibia), and rupture usually occurs at the bone-tendon junction on the tibia. This injury is painful and disabling, and results in the patient being unable to achieve full knee extension.

Achilles Tendon Tear

The Achilles tendon is the largest and strongest tendon in the body, and attaches two major calf muscles to the heal of the foot. Rupture usually occurs 2 – 6 cm from the boney heal insertion site, but may occur at any point along the length of the tendon. The result of a tear is an acute and severe pain with a loss of flexion power in the foot, and the patient will be unable to run, climb stairs or stand on their toes.
