Epub Apr At this point it is important to check that the pins will be placed in the center of the femoral tunnel and hence through the graft Fig. Postoperative rehabilitation Postoperatively, the knee was stabilized for three days by a zero-degree splint.

Meniscal injuries are addressed with partial resection or balancing. It seems that femoral rigid fix and tibial Intrafix is one of the strongest fixations in ACL reconstruction using hamstring graft. Hamstring graft fixation using femoral Rigid-fix and tibial Bio-intrafix devices provide secure graft fixation and allows aggressive rehabilitation.

Please make intrafis you are ready to buy if you decide to place a bid. Similarly, the mean anterior translation of tibia improved from 7. Yes You can also: This suggests that all the patients had significant improvement after ACL reconstruction with this technique of fixation. Similarly, the mean anterior translation of tibia improved from 7.

Food and Drug Administration and state and local regulatory agencies. In inntrafix comparative study between femoral Rigid-fix and femoral Bio-intrafix devices tibial side was constant with Intrafix technique for hamstring graft fixation, Choi et al.

DePuy Mitek 7-8mm Bio-Intrafix Small Sheath Trial

Preparation of quadrupled hamstring graft with four stranded separate on one side for tibial Bio-intrafix fixation. Graft stabilization with absorbable pins inserted perpendicular to the femoral tunnel provides a secure fixation when compared with other soft-tissue fixation devices. The mean age of patients included in this study was Is radial force a predictor of the pullout strength of soft-tissue interference devices?


J Clin Orthop Trauma. After complete clinical and radiological evaluation, patients were arthroscopically treated with ACL reconstruction using hamstring graft.

ACL reconstruction using femoral Rigid-fix and tibial Bio-intrafix devices.

None intrafox the patients complained of instability, joint swelling or severe pain in the postoperative period. It is the purchaser’s sole responsibility to follow and adhere to all manufacturer’s guidelines and instructions inyrafix proper use of said item.

They concluded that centrally placed polyethylene screw with sheath provided equivalent clinical outcomes to that of interference screw and staples at minimum 2-year follow-up. Discussion In the early postoperative period, the strength of fixation of the graft is the critical point limiting aggressive rehabilitation. Institutional ethics committee permission was obtained and consent from the patients was taken prior to their recruitment in the study.

The fixation has to be strong enough to withstand sudden overload or repetitive submaximal loading and stiff enough to re-establish the stability of the knee and minimize graft-tunnel motion.

Patients were allowed partial weight bearing with walking crutches immediately after surgery. Comparing 2-year outcomes of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using either patella-tendon or semitendinosus-tendon autografts: The objective of this study is to report the clinical and functional outcomes of Hamstring graft ACL reconstruction fixed with femoral Rigid-fix and tibial Bio-intrafix devices.

Materials and methods All patients between 18 and 45 years of age who were operated for their ACL deficient knee between Jan and Dec with autologus hamstring graft fixed by rigid-fix device in the femoral tunnel jntrafix bio-intrafix device in the tibial tunnel were prospectively evaluated. The femoral rigid-fix cross-pin and tibial bio-intrafix fixations are technically simple and reproducible.

Donor localization morbidity was markedly reduced and they had no complications. Then the femoral guide wire was removed and the 3. These fixation devices intarfix fix the graft to the tunnels till biological fixation has occurred and allows aggressive rehabilitation. Everything we sell is “as-is” with no warranty of any kind. Confirmation of pin placement at the centre of the tunnel with a guide pin.


The mean pre-op IKDC score was Please look at all pictures and go through intrfix description before bidding.

ACL reconstruction using femoral Rigid-fix and tibial Bio-intrafix devices

Lysholm score in pre-op and post-op period was Tibial fixation in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: The mean anterior translation of tibia in the pre-op period was 7. Please review our privacy policy. The clinical and functional outcome of this hybrid fixation technique is rewarding. Identification of ACL foot print on tibial articular surface. The concentric placement of the screw within the sheath ensures 0 graft-to-bone placement with improved engagement. Nevertheless, the treatment results depend on the press-fit of the graft, bone density around the femoral tunnel, and correct placement of the cross pins through the graft tendon.

EMS Supply view seller’s other items: In the postoperative period also none of the patient presented with infection, graft failure, graft slippage, restriction of movements or knee pain. Contributions of femoral fixation methods to the stiffness of anterior cruciate ligament replacements at implantation. Additionally, posterior wall blow-out does not seem to be a serious problem because the graft was fixed within the tunnel proximal to its intra-articular outlet.
