Allograft Tendons

Arthrex offers a variety of tendon allografts, including a wide portfolio of presutured tendons, for primary and revision ligament repairs and reconstruction procedures. Allograft tendons provide many benefits over autograft tendons in reconstructive procedures, including less donor-site morbidity,1,2 fewer incisions, shorter operative time,1,2 larger and predictable graft sizes,2 and decreased postoperative pain and stiffness.2 Potential uses for allograft tendons include procedures for the ACL, PCL, MCL, and LCL; elbow ligament repair; and lateral ankle stabilization procedures. Arthrex offers our customers an option of sterile tendons or aseptically processed tendons. Sterile tendons from our tissue bank alliance partners are processed using methods used to render the tissue sterile without causing biomechanical or biochemical changes to the tissue. Presutured constructs are an off-the-shelf solution with minimal preparation time that provide surgeons with a high-quality, consistent, sterile, and strong allograft tendon. They are preassembled by qualified tissue technicians for consistency and are sterilized under low-dose, low-temperature irradiation for patient safety.
