Knotless AC TightRope® Technique

The Knotless AC TightRope repair system is designed for the reduction and stabilization of acute and chronic acromioclavicular joint separations. For arthroscopic procedures, the dual construct features a #6 TightRope suture preassembled into a clavicle insert and a Dog Bone™ button, which attaches to the suture loops separately after they are passed antegrade through the 3 mm bone tunnels. For open procedures, the construct also features a #6 TightRope suture preassembled into a clavicle insert and a large pec button preloaded onto an inserter, which allows surgeons to perform an open or mini-open “push-through” technique without having to use a scope or access beneath the coracoid.
