Tenodesis Screw™

Tenodesis Screws™ may be used in conjunction with #2 or 2-0 FiberWire®to facilitate intraoperative tissue tensioning and fixation in a predrilledsocket. The predrilled socket minimizes incision length, dissection, andoverall morbidity. BioComposite, PLLA, vented PEEK or titanium Tenodesis Screwinsertion provides superior and immediate fixation for foot and ankleindications such as Achilles repair, FDL, FHL tendon transfers and lateralligament stabilization. The system can also be used for applications in thehand and elbow (UCL, LRTI, distal biceps), shoulder (rotator cuff repair,proximal biceps), as well as collateral ligament repair, reconstruction andsecondary graft or suture fixation for ACL, PCL reconstruction. This constructallows for direct tendon-to-bone healing, without hardware prominence.The Tenodesis Screws are part of the Bio-TenodesisScrew System which eliminates transosseous tunnels in tendon repairsand ligament reconstructions by simplifying tissue fixation in a bone socketwhile maintaining tension of the tissue throughout fixation. A specially designed, retracting screwdriverwith extended tip tensions the graft near the base of the socket while a uniqueouter sleeve delivers the Tenodesis Screw as the extended driver retracts. Thistechnique is ideally applicable for biceps tendon and collateral ligamentrepairs. The graft passing sutures through the screw cannulation can be used toprovide backup fixation by incorporating anti-slippage mulberry knots at thedistal end of the screw. The suture ends can be tied over the screw at thecompletion of the procedure as additional backup fixation, if desired.
