Loop 'N' Tack™ Tenodesis Implant System

Developed in conjunction with Sam Akhavan, MD (Pittsburgh, PA), and James M. Paci, MD (Long Island, NY), this knotless biceps tenodesis technique is a simple approach to top-of-the-groove arthroscopic biceps tenodesis using the Loop 'N' Tack stitch configuration. For surgeons who want to transition from tenotomy to a quick arthroscopic technique, it is an excellent option for using existing portal placement while viewing familiar anatomy. This straightforward surgical approach helps minimize the potential for cramping or cosmetic "Popeye" deformity, which is often associated with tenotomy.1

The implant system provides everything required to perform a Loop 'N' Tack biceps tenodesis in a simple, convenient kit.
