Nevertheless, the treatment results depend on the press-fit of the graft, bone density around the femoral tunnel, and correct placement intravix the cross pins through the graft tendon. The accuracy of screw track meeting the femoral tunnel was tested with a thin k-wire and it was visualized inttrafix the scope through the joint. Surgical technique All reconstructions were carried out under regional or general anaesthesia, with the patient in a supine position.
Certain technical tricks definitely helped us in avoiding intraoperative hurdles. Biomechanical evaluation of tendon graft fixation at the tibial site in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with Intrafix and bioabsorbable interference screw. These fixation devices securely fix the graft to the tunnels till biological fixation has occurred and allows aggressive rehabilitation.
Identification of ACL foot print on intrafux articular surface. Perioperative antibiotic prophylaxis comprised 1.
Results None of the patients complained of instability, joint swelling or severe pain in the postoperative period. Support Center Support Center.
None of the patients complained of intrafkx, joint swelling or severe pain in the postoperative period. Currently, different fixation devices are being used in clinical settings.
Sign In or Register. Knee Surg Relat Res. Rating systems in the evaluation of knee ligament injuries. Similarly, ligamentous stability as measured by KT showed significant improvement after ACL reconstruction.
Tibial fixation in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: Need to ship this item? Similarly the ACL footprint on the tibial attachment site was identified Fig. Abstract Objectives 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. Lysholm score in pre-op and post-op period was The objective intgafix this study is to report the clinical and functional outcomes of Hamstring graft ACL bii fixed with femoral Rigid-fix and tibial Bio-intrafix devices.
Epub Apr Presentation of the patients within 3 months of their injury was an inclusion criterion for the study.

It seems that femoral rigid fix and tibial Intrafix is one of the strongest fixations in ACL reconstruction using hamstring graft. Patients were allowed partial weight bearing with walking crutches immediately after surgery.
This score improved to Graft fixation in cruciate ligament reconstruction. The Rigidfix guide frame was detached and removed. In a prospective study, the clinical Lysholm score and functional outcomes International Knee Documentation Committee, IKDC of 44 patients who underwent autologus hamstring graft ACL reconstruction using femoral Rigid-fix and tibial Bio-intrafix devices, were evaluated at the end of one year. Discussion In the early postoperative period, the strength of fixation of the graft is the critical point limiting aggressive rehabilitation.
Hamstring intarfix fixation using femoral Rigid-fix and tibial Bio-intrafix devices provide secure graft fixation and allows aggressive rehabilitation.
Medical science is an ever changing field and Information provided, may be, outdated, partial or incomplete and may be inaccurate or useless or contain mistakes.
Several biomechanical and clinical studies have shown that femoral cross-pin and tibial Intrafix or Bio-intrafix devices provide increased strength and stiffness to intrafis graft fixation.
Advertise Increase Your Brand Awareness. The fixation intrafic also should not hamper in revision ACL reconstruction surgery. 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. December 26, In Stock: The mean pre-op IKDC score was It forms a strong bone-implant interface, bonding to bone and exhibiting osteoconductive characteristics.
Improved outcomes after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with quadrupled hamstring autografts and additional bone plug augmentation at five year follow-up. Preoperative evaluation included history, clinical examination, ligamentous laxity measurement using KT arthrometer, radiographs and magnetic resonance imaging of the knee joint.
Anterior cruciate ligament fixation: In the postoperative period also intragix of the patient presented with infection, graft failure, graft slippage, restriction of movements or knee pain.
