Mitek Sports Medicine Expands Anatomic ACL Reconstruction Portfolio
Date:11/7/2013

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- 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. The company also announced the launch of the RIGIDLOOP Cortical Fixation System, which when used with the INTRAFIX® ACL Tibial Fastener System, provides surgeons with a total procedural solution for anatomic soft tissue ACL reconstructions.

Both systems were unveiled here at the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA) 32nd Fall Course, where surgeons were also able to preview the RIGIDFIX Curve System, which is in limited release in the U.S. and full release in Europe, Middle East and Africa. In addition, the company announced that, along with the 23mm screw which was released earlier this year, two new sizes of MILAGRO® ADVANCE Interference Screws (30mm and 35mm) were added to Mitek Sports Medicine's growing portfolio of knee solutions for soft tissue and bone-patellar tendon-bone reconstruction.

RIGIDFIX Curve Cross Pin System 
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.[1] 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
