Title

Abstract

The Mitek Mini GII anchor is showcased as a relatively new device that provides a rapid, simple method for bony reattachment; here, it is introduced for the fixation of flexor or extensor tendons at their insertion. Transosseous tunnels with limited visualization, pull-out sutures, and external devices can now be avoided if desired. Applications for soft-tissue fixation should in no way be limited to the small bones of the hand. Expense of the apparatus remains its only major drawback.
