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 as well as restricted movement and pain.

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, Peek and bioresorbable implants such as interference screws, suture anchors and fixation buttons.

Highlights

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.

FLIPPTACK – Extracortical Implant System for the Femoral Fixation of Cruciate Ligaments

The FLIPPTACK fixation button from KARL STORZ is a proven system for femoral fixation in cruciate ligament reconstruction. The system, which consists of the FLIPPTACK, the tendon board, and the FLIPPTACK holder, allows optimal preparation of the graft for passage into the joint. After the so-called FLIPPING process, the FLIPPTACK comes to rest extracortically and subcutaneously; since it remains in the body, it ensures stable long-term fixation.

Recommended for use with Serag Wiessner Sulene USP 7, a high-quality polyester suture that is precisely braided and features a special silicone coating. In braided sutures of this type, this coating reduces the typical tissue cutting effect and minimizes capillarity.

RICHTER POWERFIX® – Bioinert PEEK Implants for Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

POWERFIX® PEEK interference screws, made from PEEK-OPTIMA®, provide another innovation that complements the KARL STORZ implant portfolio. A highlight of the screw design is the availability of femoral reverse-thread interference screws which prevent luxation of the graft in the anterior direction during ACL reconstruction of the right knee. The double-threaded screw design makes it possible to insert the screw with just a few turns of a screwdriver that accommodates all screw sizes. 

PEEK-OPTIMA® implant material features the following properties:

  • High mechanical stability
  • Excellent biocompatibility
  • Inert, non-resorbable PEEK

The POWERFIX® interference screws made of PEEK-OPTIMA® are radiolucent and thus allow optimal monitoring of the healing process by means of X-rays, CT or MRI without creating artefacts.
