The tensionable Knotless Hip FiberTak soft anchor combines the benefits of soft anchors with knotless soft-tissue fixation. These anchors are compatible with straight and curved drill guide instrumentation, and the tensionable suture-locking mechanism allows surgeons to control the repair tension under direct visualization.
Designed to reapproximate hip capsular tissue following a capsulotomy during hip arthroscopy, the LoopLoc knotless implant is an alternative to closing the hip capsule with traditional sutures that require a knot to be tied. Advantages of the LoopLoc knotless implant:
Tears of the gluteus medius tendon are a common source of lateral hip pain and a cause of greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS). Gluteus medius tendons are sometimes referred to as the “rotator cuff of the hip.” Partial and full-thickness tears can be repaired in an open or endoscopic fashion with techniques similar to those used in shoulder surgery.
In an open or endoscopic manner, the ischial tuberosity of the pelvis is located and debrided. The tendinous origin of the hamstring muscle group is found and reattached back to the ischial tuberosity.
Avascular necrosis (AVN) occurs when a loss of blood supply to the bone results in the eventual death of the bone. Left untreated, the end result is the collapse of the affected bone. Although AVN can occur in any joint, it commonly occurs in the femoral head. Routine treatment of femoral head AVN is total hip arthroscopy, a technique that involves removing the necrotic bone, which is typically found 5-mm to 10-mm below the articular cartilage. Using arthroscopic and fluoroscopic guidance as a reference, reamers allow for treatment of femoral head AVN lesions. Once the lesion is decompressed, Arthrex offers multiple biologic options to backfill the socket and cavity.
An advanced limb positioning and distraction system for supine hip arthroscopy procedures with or without a perineal post, the Hip Distraction System (AR-6529S*) includes a patient table and pad, a patient prep platform and pad, two leg spars with traction boots, and a perineal post and pad. A pair of table clamps (based on the mating table rail) are also included. This next-generation hip distraction system features intuitive controls to facilitate preoperative patient setup and intraoperative changes in patient positioning. The system is engineered out of carbon fiber, aluminum, and other lightweight, unyielding materials that provide maximum rigidity and minimal flex, ensuring distraction forces are maintained and reducing the overall weight for portability from storage to the operating room. Identical teleTrac Carriages with gross and fine traction controls on the leg spars allow the fluid range of motion necessary during hip arthroscopy procedures. Hip flexion, extension, abduction, and adduction are controlled using the individual operating handles on the end of each spar. The novel traction boots with ratcheting straps provide the most secure and safe attachment for the patient's foot while minimizing heel lift and slip out.
