Mini TightRope® Fixation System

Flexible fixation devices like the Knotless Mini TightRope implant afford surgeons an alternative to traditional rigid screw or screw-and-plate fixation for common foot and ankle pathologies, including hallux valgus, Lisfranc injuries, and hallux varus. The Mini TightRope system provides a strong and reproducible construct that stabilizes bones without overconstraining the joint,1-3 which can lead to early hardware failure and the need for a second hardware removal surgery.

This knotless, tensionable technology reduces the required number of surgical steps, reducing the risk of soft-tissue irritation from knot stacks and eliminating variability in implant tensioning.
