Soft Tissue ACL Reconstruction

Surgical Technique

Patients that have sustained an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear, which is often a sports-related injury, may require surgery to reconstruct the ACL. In this procedure, a graft from the patient or from a donor is used to replace the torn ligament. Suspensory or aperture fixation may be used to fixate the graft in place. 

The Infinity™ Femoral Adjustable Loop Button, GraftMax™ Button, or XO Button® provide suspensory fixation, which offers excellent fixation strength while allowing for maximum interface between the graft and bone tunnel. Suspensory fixation can be used to fixate the graft on both the femur and tibia, or can be used on the femur in combination with an interference device on the tibial side. The ExoShape® Femoral and Tibial Soft Tissue Fasteners provide an aperture fixation solution.


Infinity™ Femoral Adjustable Loop Button

  • No Minimum Loop Length: For optimal patient outcomes, this fully adjustable button has no minimal loop length and has been designed to allow for maximum graft fill in the tunnel

  • Dual Locking Mechanism: Mechanical and friction locking mechanisms combine to create graft fixation.

The Infinity™ Modular Guide System

Infinity™ Guide Arms 

  • The Infinity Modular Guide System features five guide arms that accommodate both ACL & PCL procedures.

Infinity™ Guide Sleeves

  •  Infinity Modular Guide System features three guide sleeves that accommodate both standard 2.4mm guide pin drilling and all-inside approaches.

Infinity™ Guide Body 

  • For maximum ease-of-use, the Infinity Guide Bodies are designed for single-hand use – allowing surgeons to easily adjust the guide arm with their thumb. The guide arm’s centering feature is designed to prevent off-target drilling and enable tunnel placement. For convenience, the quick latch feature makes switching between and removing guide sleeves fast and easy.

Genesys™ Matryx® Screw

  • Optimal combination of biologic healing and mechanical integrity
  • Strong initial fixation to enable bone in growth

ExoShape® ACL Reconstruction Solution
  • Non-Rotational: non-rotational fixations
  • Aperture Fixation: achieves anatomic reconstruction
  • Shape Memory PEEK Altera®: simplified insertion and expansion
