The T-Lock OSTEOTRANS tendon anchor is a unique implant for reconstructive cruciate ligament surgery.
The main area of application for the tendon anchor is femoral fixation of tendon grafts (semitendinosus tendon) in the reconstruction of anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments (ACL/PCL) in knee surgery.
The T-Lock OSTEOTRANS tendon anchor ensures an extremely high level of pull-out strength for fixation of femoral cruciate ligaments in a bottle-shaped tunnel which does not generally require additional use of the gracilis tendon for the graft.
The bioactive and bioresorbable implant achieves an anatomically correct positioning and fixation of the graft close to the joint.
- Made of Osteotrans, bioresorbable composite material with high mechanical strength
- Osteoconductive – The uHA particles are broken down directly by osteoclasts and hence conduct the surrounding bony structures into the surface of the implant
- No encapsulation of the implant by continuous acid buffering when the PLLA is broken down
- No osteolysis
- Long-term bioresorption
- Bone formation through remodeling process
- Anatomical fixation
Knee problems: Knee joint injuries, especially ruptures of the cruciate ligaments, are on the increase. The key to reconstruction is the transplant fixation method. A small but perfectly formed innovation from Richard Wolf is now creating new perspectives for efficiency and strength.
A safe port: New anchors for tendon reconstruction: The T-Lock OSTEOTRANS tendon anchor is a unique implant for reconstructive, orthopedic surgery and sports medicine. The main area of application is femoral fixation of tendon implants in the reconstruction of cruciate ligaments. The bioactive and bioresorbable implant is set apart by excellent material properties. It guarantees optimum pull-out strength of the transplant with anatomically correct fixation close to the joint.
