FiberTak® Biceps Tenodesis Technique
The FiberTak Biceps Implant System delivers an all-suture anchor designed for use in open, onlay-tissue fixation procedures, particularly proximal and distal biceps repairs. The implant is double-loaded with sliding SutureTape and includes 4 attached needles. The system includes a FiberTak biceps implant, drill guide, 1.9 mm drill, and a free curved needle.
FiberTak® Button Tenodesis Technique
Use the all-suture FiberTak button in lieu of traditional metal buttons for both bicortical and unicortical tension-slide techniques. Its 2.6 mm-diameter sheath is preloaded with 2-0 FiberLink™ sutures that are used to shuttle the whipstitch limbs through the sheath.
As part of the distal biceps repair procedure, the tension-slide technique with the BicepsButton™ implant provides a simple, reproducible, and biomechanically stable repair. This tensioning technique reliably draws the tendon against the distal cortex of the bone socket. Adding a tenodesis screw improves the biomechanical strength and allows the tendon to be placed in a more anatomic position.
