Cortical Button Tenodesis Technique

Subpectoral biceps tenodesis using cortical buttons and the tension-slide technique allows for reliable tensioning and a bicortical or unicortical repair of the long head of the biceps.

Featuring a locking jaw, the TensionTight™ button is used for performing knotless onlay biceps tenodesis with an arthroscopic suprapectoral or open subpectoral approach. Securing the biceps tendon with a Loop 'N' Tack™ stitch enables an all-arthroscopic suprapectoral tenodesis.

With the bicortical technique, use the BicepsButton™ implant to draw the tendon against the distal cortex of the bone socket. A tenodesis screw can be added to further support the repair.The unicortical technique requires the 8.5 mm long proximal tenodesis button, which has angled edges to promote a toggle effect when the button contacts the far cortex. The tension-slide technique reliably draws the tendon onto the humerus.
