This revolutionary technology provides an ideal solution for accommodating shorter femoral tunnels which often result from anatomic techniques including single- and double-bundle ACL reconstructions. Features and benefits: Designed without a continuous loop of suture Utilizes one-step drilling Accommodates different size grafts 5 mm - 9 mm Technique Technique 1. Measure the graft. Drill femoral and tibial tunnels ensuring that you drill all the way through the cortex on the femoral side. TIP: Drilling the femoral tunnels through the anteromedial portal will create shorter more anatomic tunnels.

Zulumuro Pediatric anterior cruciate ligament femoral fixation: Therefore, to evaluate the Cross-Pin and EndoButton performance for femoral fixation we apply the load directly on the graft.
A 6 mm over-the-top guiding device was used to locate the anatomical ACL insertion.

The fixation of graft is totally dependent of implant performance during this period. ACL reconstruction using the Rigidfix femoral fixation device via the anteromedial portal: Mechanical behavior of two hamstring graft constructs for reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament. ACL reconstruction performed using a transtibial tunnel technique often results in a vertical ACL graft, which may fail to control the combined motions of anterior tibial translation and internal tibial rotation which occur during the pivot-shift phenomenon.
Conclusion The results obtained in this experiment indicate that the Bio Cross-Pin technique promote stiffer fixation during cyclic loading as compared with EndoButton. Mark the ACL tibial aimer bullet with a surgical marker at the desired tibial tunnel length.
To prevent guide pin breakage, ensure that the drill tip portion of the guide pin is fully inserted into endoobutton bone before using power to drill the pin through the bone. Establishing the AM portal at the correct height above the medial joint line is extremely important to the success of the procedure.
Another potential complication is lateral extravasation because this technique is performed in the extra-articular space. Orthop Clin North Am ; The femoral site becomes the weak point in this case.
In the situation of revision ACL surgery, the medial portal technique often allows endobutyon new anatomical ACL femoral tunnel to be drilled away from a previous non-anatomical vertical femoral tunnel. Clinical and functional outcomes after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using cortical button fixation versus transfemoral suspensory fixation: The additional medial portal allows the ACL femoral attachment site to be viewed through the AM portal, while working instrumentation is inserted into the notch through the AAM portal.
A cumulative meta-analysis and clinically relevant sensitivity analysis applied to a previously published analysis. In chronic cases with notch osteophytes or in patients with small tehcnique notches, a limited endobuttton at the shallow border of the notch is performed using a small curved compound gouge Fig. Anatomical Techhnique femoral tunnel position Although the clock-face reference method is often used to specify ACL femoral tunnel placement, it has several shortcomings: A Anteroposterior radiograph of a right Rt knee during operation showing migrated EndoButtons of anteromedial and posterolateral graft arrow.
The previous studies showed a positive correlation between a malpositioned EndoButton and a higher rate of button migration. Aust J Rural Health ; All-inside anterior cruciate ligament graft-link technique: The trans-iliotibial band endoscopic portal for direct visualization of ideal button placement.
How to cite this article. Discussion This Technical Note presents an arthroscopic technique that successfully removes interposed soft tissue between the EndoButton and the lateral aspect of the femoral cortex and reduces EndoButton migration from the endobuton aspect of the femoral cortex of the knee. The medial portal technique in which the ACL femoral tunnel is drilled through an anteromedial or accessory anteromedial portal allows consistent anatomical ACL tunnel placement.
Biomechanical comparison of Cross-Pin and Endobutton femoral fixation of a flexor tendon graft for anterior techniaue ligament reconstruction — A porcine femur-graft-tibia complex study. Raise or lower the handle of the tibial guide aimer until the mark on the bullet is located at the end of the aimer handle tecchnique the bullet is flush with the anterior cortex of the tibia.
All of the constructs, therefore, can be considered to be secure enough for their intended use. Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, Endobutton, hamstring tendon, Rigidfix. The AAM portal —used as a working portal to insert instrumentation into the notch and for drilling the ACL femoral tunnel. Median, range and 25—75 percentile of active read only memory Click here to view. Proper portal placement is critical to the success of the procedure.
Displacement at yield mm. However, the resulting ACL femoral tunnel is often positioned too high and deep in the intercondylar notch, outside of the native ACL femoral attachment site Fig. This technique requires careful cleaning of the soft tissue over the lateral cortex of the femur.
Three femoral fixation devices for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: The tibial guide pin is positioned slightly anterior to the posterior margin of the anterior horn of the lateral meniscus and slightly medial to the midline of the insertion site.
Reduce the migrated EndoButton to the proper position, and fit the EndoButton to the lateral cortex of the knee by pulling the graft on the tibial side. The drill tip femoral guide pin exits the lateral soft tissues in the mid-thigh region and is thus directed away from the peroneal nerve and posterior neurovascular structures.

References Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction proved to be the commonest sports injury worldwide. The annual incidence is increasing and is commoner among the professional athlete than the armature ones . Surgical reconstruction of the torn anterior cruciate ligament is performed to restore knee stability and to decrease the adverse consequences of knee instability namely injury to other intraarticular structures . There are a number of options for the femoral fixation of the hamstring graft including interference screw, endobutton and femoral cross-pin. The Endobutton EB suture loop and metal plate is commonly used and is relatively cheap.
