ACL reconstruction using femoral Rigid-fix and tibial Bio-intrafix devices.

Nevertheless, the treatment results depend on the press-fit of the graft, bone density around the femoral tunnel, and correct placement of the cross pins through the graft tendon. No warranty is being offered for disposable and soft good items. After complete clinical and radiological evaluation, patients were arthroscopically treated with ACL reconstruction using hamstring graft. It seems that femoral rigid fix and tibial Intrafix is one of the strongest fixations in ACL reconstruction using hamstring graft.

Is radial force a predictor of the pullout strength of soft-tissue interference devices? The fixation technique also should not hamper in revision ACL reconstruction surgery.

No returns will be accepted after the 15 day time frame. The cross pins were inserted as close to the joint line as possible to provide outlet graft fixation. All medical supplies, instruments, and or equipment we list on DotMed are, to the best of our knowledge, in compliance with DotMeds policies and guidelines.


Introduction In anterior cruciate ligament ACL reconstruction, hamstring tendon grafts are replacing the popular bone-patellar tendon bone grafts that have been associated with femoro-tibial joint pain, loss of extension, and patellar intratix rupture. Wound was closed in layers. The Mitek rigid fix pins were used for femoral tunnel where as bio-absorbable screws were used for the tibial tunnel.

DePuy Mitek 7-8mm Bio-Intrafix Small Sheath Trial

Similarly the ACL footprint on the tibial attachment site was identified Fig. The clinical and functional outcome of this hybrid fixation technique is rewarding.

Lysholm score and knee clinical tests were parameters used for outcome evaluation. Tibial fixation in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: The concentric placement of the screw within the sheath ensures 0 graft-to-bone placement with improved engagement. We are not responsible for the misuse, intentional or accidental, of any item purchased through our listing style, fixed priced, or Store Inventory listings. All reconstructions were carried out under regional or general anaesthesia, with the patient in a supine position.

Presentation of the patients within 3 months of their injury was an inclusion criterion for the study. Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc. Discussion In the early postoperative period, the strength of fixation of the graft is the critical point limiting aggressive rehabilitation.

A prospective, randomized comparison of semitendinosus and gracilis tendon versus patellar tendon autografts for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: Statistical analysis was performed using SPSS software ver. Identification of ACL foot print on tibial articular surface.

Epub Jul The mean age of patients included in this study was At this point it is important to check that the pins will be placed in the center of the femoral tunnel and hence through the graft Fig. Support Center Support Center. Lysholm scores in the preoperative and follow up period were Meniscal injuries are addressed with partial resection or balancing.

They concluded that centrally placed polyethylene screw with sheath provided equivalent clinical outcomes to that of interference screw and staples at minimum 2-year follow-up. An early rehabilitation could be initiated in all patients because of minimal donor site morbidity and secure graft fixation.
