TightRope® II Attachable Button System

The TightRope attachable button system (ABS) revolutionized minimally invasive, adjustable-loop suspensory fixation grafts used in knee ligament surgery. Suitable for all graft types, TightRope II ABS implant loops can be attached to a variety of button configurations for fixation over sockets created with a FlipCutter® drill or full tunnels with concave buttons.

The flat-tape TightRope II ABS implant loop improves handling characteristics and can reduce graft abrasion.1 Able to easily pass through narrow bone tunnels, the two-piece TightRope II ABS implant allows increased cortical fixation with the assembly of a large button over the cortical bone. During all-inside ACL reconstruction, use the TightRope II ABS implant for tibial fixation in QuadLink™ and GraftLink® techniques or graft fixation over small bone tunnels created during transtibial ACL reconstruction.
