Lateral Ankle Reconstruction
Features and Benefits
Convenience: No prep time or timely harvest of autograft required, no training for staff necessary. An out-of-the-box option for OR efficiency.
Compatible: Construct was designed by Arthrex to be used with their Lateral Ankle Implant Kit (AR-1675BC-CP). Specialized tools, fixation, and guides have already been developed and are in use by surgeons today.
Pre-sized: Construct designed to a diameter of 4 to 5mm and length of 150 to 160mm - eliminating the need for trimming by the surgeon’s staff.
Consistency: Trained technicians suturing graft for construct consistency. Removes the variability between surgical assistants or physician assistants preparing the tendon.
Patient-Friendly: Construct eliminates donor site morbidity and associated pain from autograft harvest. This makes the procedure less invasive and likely decreases OR time. Less OR time can mean less time under anesthesia and less tourniquet time.
Sterile: Sutured Lateral Ankle Tendon is sterilized using proprietary and patented Allowash XG technology. This provides a sterility assurance level of 10-6, without compromising the construct’s inherent biomechanical properties.
