Stryker Launches VersiTomic G-Lok™
Date:7/7/2011

SAN DIEGO, July 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Stryker Joint Preservation, a business unit of Stryker's Orthopaedics group, today announced at the 2011 American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine its new G-Lok implant has joined its comprehensive VersiTomic portfolio for ACL/PCL reconstruction.

Built upon the same versatile, anatomic, and reliable advanced technology as products currently in the VersiTomic portfolio, the VersiTomic G-Lok is designed to provide suspension fixation of soft tissue to bone during orthopaedic reconstruction procedures.  

The G-Lok's unique rod design creates a spring-like action which allows the G-Lok to automatically deploy on the cortical surface. G-Lok's loop material is made from the latest technology in high performance medical-grade fiber from Dyneema Purity, available in multiple loop sizes, and is designed to increase creep resistance and enhance strength(1). In addition, G-Lok XL is available to provide an additional 5mm in length and 1mm in width to the G-Lok.

"Our VersiTomic platform  is designed to provide surgeons with the flexibility and versatility they need to create a more anatomic ACL or PCL reconstruction while allowing them to customize their technique to the patient," said Matt Moreau, Vice President & General Manager, Stryker Joint Preservation.

G-Lok joins Stryker's VersiTomic Flexible Reaming System whose puzzle piece technology allows for anatomically placed tunnels without the need to hyperflex the knee, and its Biosteon Biocomposite Interference Screws, with over nine years of clinical use, for a comprehensive solution to ACL/PCL reconstruction.
