The ExoShape® Tibial Soft Tissue Fastener features a non-rotational insertion and expansion technique that provides secure tibial soft tissue graft fixation during ACL reconstruction. The ExoShape Tibial Soft Tissue Fastener’s “closed force loop” technique eliminates unwanted laxity into the newly reconstructed ligament by preventing retrograde force being applied to the graft.
Better Graft Compression.
The expansion of the shape memory PEEK Altera® sheath generates high radial forces that effectively compress and fixate the graft against the bone tunnel walls. The resultant force generated correlates closely to pullout performance of interference fixation devices.
Preserved Graft Orientation.
Eliminates “graft wrap” and preserves your preferred graft orientation. The graft bundles stay exactly where you place them, promoting a more anatomic reconstruction.
Maintains Graft Tension.
Other fixation devices can drive the graft back up the tibial tunnel, introducing unwanted laxity into the newly reconstructed ligament. The ExoShape Tibial Soft Tissue Fastener’s “closed force loop” technique is designed to eliminate this problem.
Simplifies Insertion & Expansion.
The shape memory PEEK Altera sheath is delivered pre-compressed in a low-profile geometry that inserts easily between the graft bundles. The ExoShape Tibial Gun provides controlled sheath expansion for optimized graft fixation.
