The ACL/PCL Cortical Fixation Case is a system that incorporates a variety of fixation options. The set includes low-profile 4.5 mm cortical, 6.5 mm cortical, and 6.5 mm cancellous screw options. It also includes low-profile spiked washers and ligament staples.
The screws have extremely low profile heads to reduce soft tissue irritation. A step drill with laser depth marking countersinks the screw head flush to bone when used as a suture fixation post. The smooth shank with suture groove orients the sutures safely under the head during screw insertion. The optional, low profile spiked washer may be used in conjunction with the cancellous screw for fixation of soft tissue or tendons directly to bone.
The instrumentation set includes a 2.5 mm Drill for Bi-Cortical Post to broach the cortical bone, while the depth device is used to obtain accurate sizing information. Although the post has a self-tapping feature, a tap is included for those who prefer the “drill-measure-tap” insertion technique.
Ligament staples, with a low profile bridge, reduce the frequency of secondary removal due to patient discomfort caused by soft tissue irritation. The cobalt chrome spiked fixation staple has sharp leg points for easier penetration into cortical bone without predrilling. The Staple Driver with attachable impactor/extractor allows complete impaction since the staple driver tip is flush with the staple bridge. The Staple Seating Punch may be used for further impaction. All staples are 20 mm in length.
