ACL Tightrope RT

ACL Tightrope RT

Arthrex engineers, makers of the ACL Tightrope, have taken their design to a new level with the ACL Tightrope RT. The ACL Tightrope RT was launched into Malaysia in September 2011 and has been used in more than 100 cases to date. ACL TightRope RT Whereas previously it was necessary for surgeons to adjust the implant by pulling the tensioning strands in the opposite direction to the implant, advancements in design now eliminate the problems associated with the need to retrieve shortening strands and enable surgeons to pull in line with the graft advancement. This improved development makes the ACL Tightrope RT even easier to use than its predecessor. Advantages of the ACL Tightrope and ACL Tightrope RT over other cortical fixation techniques include:

  • Dramatic reduction in Tunnel widening and the bungy effect of the graft
  • No loop length calculations are required
  • Fill the entire socket with the graft, promoting advanced healing Socket
  • Less instrumentation required
  • One size fits all thus removing the need to stock a variety of sizes
  • The ability to redeploy the implant if it is caught in soft tissue
  • 980N (Load to Failure)
  • Easy to deploy

Feedback on the new system has been very positive: “The button is easy to flip and I am not worry [sic] about correct loop lengths as with traditional button systems” (Sports Surgeon, Malaysia). “This product has allowed me to fill entire [sic] socket with graft. As I do most of my cases transportally I sometimes have short intraosseous lengths that limits my graft length in my femoral socket” (Ortho Surgeon, Malaysia). “The increased stiffness also fills me with confidence that it reduces the chance of experiencing grade one laxities as experienced at 6 months as with traditional Button systems” (Sports Surgeon, Malaysia).
