Open repair of acute Achilles tendon ruptures continues to remain controversial among surgeons as they weigh the tradeoffs of reduced re-rupture rates, improved calf strength, and increased return to activity against potential wound healing and infectious complications.1 With the Achilles Midsubstance SpeedBridge™ (AMSS) implant system, surgeons no longer have to compromise.

The benefits of the AMSS system include:

  • Percutaneous, knotless fixation using BioComposite SwiveLock® anchors
  • Augmentation of the repair using high-strength, low-profile FiberWire® SutureTape sutures2
  • Reproducible tensioning that eliminates the variability of knot tying
