The primary goal in reconstructive sports medicine procedures is to reduce pain and restore function of the joints by balancing supporting structures, including ligaments, in order to improve biomechanics.
ACL injuries most often occur during sports that involve sudden stops and directional movements — such as soccer, football, basketball and volleyball, but can also occur during daily activities.
ACL reconstruction is surgery to replace a torn or ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and to restore stability of the knee.
Leader Biomedical’s Sports Medicine Reconstruction portfolio offers a targeted therapeutic solution for Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction surgeries, addressing ligament injury, with the X-Grip® system that can be combined with allograft tendons.
The X-Grip® system is a leading ACL reconstruction solution that has been used in over 50,000 surgeries.
The X-Grip® system is manufactured using MBCP™ Technology and facilitates bone regeneration with a resorption rate that mimics human bone.
- The diameter and thread of the X-Grip® screw ensure optimal contact with bone tissue
- Can be combined with autologous and allograft tendons
- Suitable for primary and revision knee surgeries with single, double, and quadruple strand techniques
The X-Grip® system was designed to ensure a regulated resorption, for optimal osteointegration, while retaining the necessary mechanical strength.
The system includes the resorbable X-Grip® standard screw (100% PLDLLA) and X-Grip® composite screw (75% PLDLLA and 25% OssGro® granules).
Allograft tendons are frequently used as substitutes for autologous tendons, when harvesting autologous tendons is problematic or undesirable.
Leader Biomedical’s allograft tendons are processed with our proprietary eCOO® Technology, a mild and efficient platform using supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2) to clean, sterilise, and impregnate human and animal-derived bone and tissue with limited use of chemicals.
- Retains and preserves structural and mechanical properties of the allograft
- Optimal cleaning ensures safety with organic residue removal and viral inactivation
- Minimal use of harsh chemical and biological agents
