Minor Outlying Islands U. Hide Details Hide Thumbnails. For example, in our experience, sometimes the button artgrex the TightRope RT may not flip, may become jammed inside the femoral canal, or may flip in the substance of the vastus lateralis.

Dropping of an EndoButton into the knee joint 2 years after anterior cruciate ligament repair using proximal fixation methods. Scope This Out Winter – Vol. The ACL TightRope implant tigntrope the need for multiple implant sizes and facilitates complete graft fill of short femoral sockets, which are common with anatomic ACL drilling.

Potential pitfall of the Endobutton. Educational Resources Products Related Science. The only precaution that needs to be kept in mind is to prevent widening of the femoral guide pin hole or breaking of the cortical bone bridge by the guide pin by an uncontrolled push.

Using a single hamstring tendon looped between 2 ACL TightRope implants allows for simplified graft passing and tensioning from the femoral and tibial side in any degree of flexion.

Click here to view. The push of agthrex button with the guide pin past the guide pin hole helps in not only delivering the button out of the pin hole but also flipping it on the cortex. Because the loop is long, the graft has not yet entered into the joint. The adjustable graft tightrlpe allows the surgeon some freedom in terms of the length of the femoral socket, eliminates the need for bothersome intraoperative calculations arthrdx selecting loop length, ensures that the socket is completely filled with graft, and provides the possibility of tensioning the graft even after graft fixation.

The depth of the femoral socket is 25 mm, and the pin hole through the cortical bone bridge is 10 mm long. Biomechanical Testing File Type: When you are ready to submit your request, simply click the “View Cart” button 5 or alternatively the “Cart Overview” button 4. This can potentially result in late graft loosening after ischemic necrosis of the interposed tissues. The guide pin is introduced through the anteromedial portal, inserted at the femoral footprint of the anterior cruciate ligament, and brought tightrlpe through the lateral cortex.

The femoral socket is then created with a drill of the size determined from the diameter of the graft, leaving about 7 to 10 mm of cortical bone bridge laterally. We will review your message shortly after it is submitted and if approved it will appear on the product page.

Support Center Support Center. This proprietary 4-point knotless fixation system resists cyclic displacement and offers strong pullout strength.

Please fill out all the information before registering. The button is then pushed gently or tapped slowly through the pinhole with the help of this guide pin Fig 2Video 1. An unidentified pitfall of Endobutton use: Please review gightrope privacy policy. Kyle Anderson, MD Share. The viewing portal is the anterolateral portal.

Use the checkboxes below to add items. When the graft is pulled back in the reverse direction to check whether the button has flipped, the end of the button may temporarily become stuck at the lateral opening of the guide pin hole, giving the false impression that it has flipped and engaged on the lateral femoral cortex.

fightrope Another complication is that the button can be pulled out through the skin laterally while one is pulling it from the outside or it may flip within the substance of the vastus lateralis. Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction in the young athlete: Another mark is made on the graft, with measurement from its femoral end, equal to the length of the femoral socket. This innovation eliminates the need to retrieve shortening strands from the joint and allows the surgeon to pull in-line with graft advancement.

The ACL TightRope RT implant is the first adjustable loop device to allow cal to pull the shortening strands in the same direction of the graft.
