The BTB TightRope® implant uses the same adjustable 4-point locking system as the ACL TightRope RT implant, but can be placed through a small drill hole in the cortical bone block. The TightRope button facilitates dependable cortical fixation and the adjustable loop allows the graft to be pulled into the desired femoral tunnel position for ideal graft-tunnel matching. The BTB TightRope implant also allows fixation of BTB grafts within anatomic femoral sockets that can be difficult to reach with traditional interference screws.
