Nonsutured Tendons

Overview

With a favorable stiffness profile, the Quadriceps tendon is a newer allograft tendon option for the reconstruction of cruciate ligaments.  This tendon allows surgeons to maximize biomechanical properties by optimizing bone block geometry and its contact in the tunnel.

Tendon allografts remain an excellent repair option for any ligament repair procedure where multiple reconstructions have failed or where tendon ruptures or tears are present

Features and Benefits

  • Natural calcaneus bone block allows surgeon to select best fixation technique
  • Ultra low dose frozen Irradiated tendon
  • Pre-trimmed bone block provides flexibility to the surgeon to shape the bone for the patient’s needs
  • Eliminates additional pain and surgical scars from autograft harvesting
  • Simplifies overall procedure saving OR time and cost
