The Tenodesis Screw System eliminates transosseous tunnels in tendon repairs and ligament reconstructions. Tenodesis Screws may be used in conjunction with #2 or 2-0 FiberWire® to facilitate intraoperative tissue tensioning and fixation in a predrilled socket. The predrilled socket minimizes incision length, dissection, and overall morbidity. BioComposite, PLLA, vented PEEK or titanium Tenodesis Screw insertion provides superior and immediate fixation for foot and ankle indications such as Achilles repair, FDL, FHL tendon transfers and lateral ligament stabilization. The system can also be used for applications in the hand and elbow (UCL, LRTI, distal biceps), shoulder (rotator cuff repair, proximal biceps), as well as collateral ligament repair, reconstruction and secondary graft or suture fixation for ACL, PCL reconstruction. This construct allows for direct tendon-to-bone healing, without hardware prominence.
