TRANSLIG implants have been designed for fixing soft tissue transplants in ACL reconstruction. Concept Using a tranversal implant in the femur provide a wide cancellous bone support and a strength close to the one of the native ACL. Graft preservation and optimal contact between the implant and the femoral tunnel favors healing. Usable in a singe or double fixation (recommended for high level sportsmen or when bone quality is deficient), TRANSLIG implants are osteoconductive and gets resorbed within 12 to 18 months. Material Duosorb: composite material made of Tricalcium Phosphate (?-TCP) and Polylactic Acid DL (PLDL). This innovative material is only manufactured by SBM. Advantages Strong and rigid fixation Fixation close to the native ACL insertion point Prevents for inflammatory reactions Favors biological integration of the graft inside the tunnel Bioabsorbable: does not hinder further surgeries Precise positioning (implementation on a rigid wire) MRI and X-ray compatible.
