What is an EndoButton made of?

What is an EndoButton made of?

Endobutton are made of titanium metal. It is non absorbable. It will remain lifelong.

What is EndoButton tape?

The EndoButton Continuous Loop is used for fixation of tendons and ligaments during orthopedic reconstruction procedures such as Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction.. Substantial Equivalence. The EndoButton Continuous Loop and the EndoButton & EndoButton Tape have similar designs.

How is EndoButton measured?

Calculating Endobutton–Continuous Loop Length The socket length is subtracted from the total channel length and 6 or 7 mm are added for a turning radius. If that number is a multiple of 5, then that is the EB-CL used. If it is not a multiple of 5, then the next-largest number that is a multiple of 5 is selected.

How do you flip EndoButton?

2. To ensure easy flipping of the ENDOBUTTON device, orient the button so that your lead suture exits the tunnel posteriorly, as shown in the diagram. This will allow the button to flip more easily on the shorter anterior aspect of the tunnel.

What is interference screw?

Interference screw is a popular fixation device used to rigidly fix bone-patellar tendon-bone (B-PT-B) graft both in femoral and tibial tunnels in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction.

What is a cortical button?

Cortical buttons, suspensory cortical buttons or suture buttons are surgical implants used in conjunction with sutures for the repair of ligament and/or tendon injuries, including biceps tendon rupture, pectoralis major injury, acromioclavicular injuries, syndesmotic injuries and anterior cruciate ligament injury.

What is a femoral EndoButton?

The EndoButton is a commonly used device for femoral fixation of anterior cruciate ligament grafts. Complications from its usage remain rare. Incorrect femoral tunnel placement may increase the risk of intra-articular displacement of the EndoButton.

What is ACL TightRope?

ACL TightRope RT for femoral graft fixation allows in-line pull of cinching sutures. to facilitate complete graft advancement into the femoral socket. The ACL TightRope Button is passed through a guide pin hole, which eliminates the need to “over ream” and preserves bone for corti- cal fixation.

How do bioabsorbable screws work?

Bioabsorbable screws are made from poly L-lactic acid (PLLA) and are absorbed by the body. This prospective, randomized study compared the safety and efficacy of the PLLA screw with that of the metal cannulated interference screw for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.

What kind of screws are used in ACL surgery?

Bioabsorbable interference screws are used extensively in orthopaedic procedures, and they are frequently used for graft fixation in ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) reconstruction.
