Arthroscopy and Sports Medicine

Joints connect bones to each other and provide the body with agility and stability. Obesity, misalignment, physical inactivity as well as sports injuries can lead to joint problems and restricted movement.

Many minimally invasive techniques can now be performed in joint surgery thanks to modern arthroscopy. The product range from KARL STORZ covers endoscopic instrument sets and implants for treatment of the shoulder, elbow, hip and knee joints as well as the wrist, interphalangeal and ankle joints.

In cooperation with renowned physicians, KARL STORZ was able to develop innovative products and techniques for, among others, meniscal refixation, cruciate ligament reconstruction, reconstruction of shoulder instability as well as hip arthroscopy.

Furthermore, KARL STORZ offers an appropriate portfolio of implants for arthroscopic reconstructive procedures. This segment includes both titanium and bioresorbable implants such as interference screws, suture anchors and fixation buttons.

Highlights

Titanium Suture Anchors for Shoulder Instability

As these implants are made of titanium Ti-6AL-4V, they do not provoke foreign body reactions (inactive material). Their position can be checked by X-ray, and there is no risk of fracture during a procedure. These anchors are pre-loaded with MEGAFIBRE® USP 2 sutures, which are made of braided, non-absorbable, ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene on a single-use inserter. This ensures that the surgical procedure can be performed quickly and efficiently, with improved knot tightness. Laser markings at the distal end facilitate anchor placement during the procedure. A bone punch ensures precise anchor placement.

BioPlug Anchor: Absorbable Implants for Reconstructive Surgery

BIOPLUG 3.5 mm, 4.2 mm, and 5.2 mm are absorbable anchors from KARL STORZ. These anchors stand out, in particular, through their high-quality material, their excellent fixation strength, and their pullout resistance. The material is an amorphous stereocopolymer known as poly-(L-co-D, L-lactide) 70:30, a special slow-degrading material that shows no reabsorption behavior whatsoever, since it remains amorphous throughout the process.

ENDOTACK® and Mini ENDOTACK® for Extracortical Fixation

ENDOTACK® (10 x 16 mm) and Mini ENDOTACK® (8 x 12 mm), made of Ti-6AL-4V ELI, allow secure tibial fixation without tilting the buttons. Graft tension is checked with the tensiometer and corrected by turning the fixation button using the button key. This ensures safe and easy handling.
