The syndesmosis TightRope implant system provides fixation of syndesmosis disruptions with or without associated ankle fractures. The syndesmosis TightRope implant system is comprised of a #5 UHMWPE, which when tensioned and secured between 2 metallic buttons and placed against the tibia and fibula, provides physiologic stabilization of the ankle mortise.
Advantages of the syndesmosis TightRope implant system:
• Improved reduction when compared to syndesmosis screws1
• Improved maintenance of reduction when compared to syndesmosis screws2
• Equivalent fixation strength when compared to syndesmosis screws3
• No need for routine implant removal
• Supports early weight-bearing and accelerated rehabilitation1
• Allows for physiologic motion of the syndesmosis following reduction and fixation
• Improved patient outcomes compared to syndesmosis screws4
