Hybrid System: For Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

The Hybrid system comprises a set of fixation devices that allow the construction of a Hybrid Graft for anatomical reconstruction of a ruptured Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL). The Hybrid Graft comprises a central looped hamstring tendon with mesh polyester tapes at each end. These tapes provide additional length to the graft and aid fixation.

The many advantages of this product include:

  • it can be used for anatomical single or double bundle techniques;
  • a proven history with over 10 years of clinical use and in excess of 10 publications;
  • the surgeon can control the thickness and length of the autograft, which also allows short length grafts to be adapted for use in ACL reconstruction;
  • the structural properties are superior to those where sutures are used and are comparable to the Bone-Tendon-Bone (BTB) graft;
  • it is more resistant to graft tension relaxation than when using sutures for fixation;
  • when using a double-bundle anatomic technique the two grafts can be easily and simultaneously fixed;
  • it is particularly suited to multiple ligament injuries.
