The availability of presutured allograft tendon constructs provides surgeons with a high-quality, consistent, sterile, and strong allograft tendon for use in primary or revision surgery. Arthrex offers the largest portfolio of presutured tendon allografts for your ligament reconstruction procedures.
Presutured tendons are preassembled by qualified tissue technicians for consistency. These tendons are sterilized under low-dose, low-temperature irradiation for patient safety. The convenience of a presutured tendon allows for an off-the-shelf solution with minimal preparation time.
Allograft tendons provide many benefits over autograft tendons in reconstructive procedures, such as less donor-site morbidity, fewer incisions, shorter operative time, larger grafts, lower incidence of postoperative arthrofibrosis, and less postoperative pain. 1,2,3
