Achilles Tendon

Returning to an active lifestyle after an anterior or posterior cruciate ligament tear is possible. The Achilles tendon can be used for the reconstruction of ACL, PCL, or tendon soft tissue augmentation.

This tendon allows surgeons to maximize biomechanical properties by optimizing bone block geometry and its contact in the tunnel, while allowing selecting the optimal length. Tendon allografts remain an excellent repair option for any ligament repair procedure where prior reconstructions have failed or where tendon ruptures or tears are present.

Achilles tendons are offered in:

  • 10mm preshaped
  • Achilles with bone
  • Achilles without bone
