The ACL ToolBox was designed to fit the needs of modern ACL reconstructions. The streamlined three layer case contains all the reusable instruments needed to complete the majority of common ACL procedures and contains an additional "pin mat" area for customization. The ACL ToolBox now contains the RetroConstruction™ Guide System with commonly used ACL marking hooks such as the footprint guides for femoral ACL drilling. Variable drill sleeves are included for all techniques and can be used with standard 2.4 mm pins, 3.0 mm RetroDrill® Pins and the 3.5 mm FlipCutters®. Everything needed to complete an ACL reconstruction can be found in this case including graft harvesting, notch preparation, tunnel drilling, graft passing and fixation.
ACL/PCL Cortical Fixation Instrument Set
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.
Collateral Ligament Reconstruction Set
The Collateral Ligament Reconstruction Set is based upon over a decade of international scientific research to improve the safety, accuracy and efficiency of posterolateral and medial/posteromedial knee reconstructions. This unique instrument set has been designed to accommodate all anatomic and isometric-based ligament reconstructions on the outside of the knee.
InternalBrace™ Procedure For A Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) Repair
The MCL InternalBrace procedure consists of a 2 mm-wide FiberTape® suture that spans the distance between two Knotless SwiveLock® anchors to augment, or enhance, the fixation points of the primary MCL repair by expanding the area of approximation during the healing process. FiberTape sutures have been proven safe and effective with over 15 years’ experience and over 3.8 million uses, including tendon and ligament-bridging repairs.
The streamlined PCL ToolBox contains all the necessary instruments for performing a variety of modern PCL reconstruction techniques. The set includes the RetroConstruction™ Drill Guide System with drill sleeves for use with the FlipCutter® reamer, RetroDrill® reamer, and standard 2.4 mm guide pins.
RetroConstruction™ Drill Guide System Instrument Set
The RetroConstruction™ drill guide set provides surgeons 6 different marking hook options for multiple applications all in a small, easy-to-manage set. The adjustable C-ring allows several drilling angles without sacrificing accuracy. Multiple drill sleeves accommodate retrograde reaming with the FlipCutter® drill or standard 2.4 mm pins for antegrade reaming. The additional stepped drill sleeve acts as a depth stop for retrograde drilling and allows continued access to the joint for graft passing suture insertion after FlipCutter drill removal.
