No risk of breakage since it is not produced by castingIt is an implant suitable for well known elevator technique. This implant is designed for repairing ligamentous (such as anterior or posterior cruciate ligaments, lateral ligaments) ruptures in a knee joint by hanging up the tendon with arthroscopic surgical technique or open surgery. During tendon hang up sutured loop length can be adjusted from lower (tibia) side. Relatively simple application and time saving are main advantages compared to prefixed loop size implants. Four holed button is designed as low profile for minimum bone defect and made of biocompatible titanium (ASTM-F136 Grade 5 ELI) material. ♯7 UPS UHMWPE sutures are used on tendon carrying loop side. However on the other side ♯5 UPS UHMWPE sutures are used for seating implant into the tunnel and adjusting the loop lenght. It is designed with special knot technique which allows adjusting the loop length without loosing its tightness .
