Chronic AC Joint Reconstruction Technique

The Chronic AC Joint Reconstruction technique involves reconstruction of chronic AC joint separations anatomically using a tendon graft with backup mechanical fixation. The technique uses 5.5 mm x 8 mm PEEK Tenodesis Screws to achieve strong graft fixation in the clavicle that allows for the recreation of the conoid and trapezoid coracoclavicular ligament bundles. The graft is protected during the healing process by using a strand of FiberWire as backup mechanical fixation.

Please note that certain bio (PLLA) anchors and screws are not available for sale in EMEA.
