Mitek Sports Medicine, a leader in orthopaedics sports medicine and a part of the DePuy Synthes Companies of Johnson & Johnson, announced it has added the RIGIDFIX Curve Cross Pin System, the first of its kind, designed specifically for use with the anteromedial (AM) portal approach to enable a more anatomic ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) reconstruction. Using the AM portal approach, the RIGIDFIX Curve System enables precise placement of two cross pins in the femoral tunnel. The cross pins provide strong fixation and the close to aperture fixation minimizes intratunnel graft micromotion, small movements of the graft inside the femoral tunnel, that may cause tunnel widening. The two cross pins create a compression fit that further enhances 360-degree graft to bone contact. The design of RIGIDFIX Curve is based on the original RIGIDFIX Cross Pin System, which has been used for ACL reconstruction through a transtibial approach for more than 10 years.
