We have found that the direct and controlled push on the button until the feeling of giving way occurred was an easier, safer, and sure way to seat the button on the femoral cortex compared with the pull. A controlled push is then applied on the button with the help of this pin, as viewed from the anterolateral portal for a right knee joint.

Don’t have an account? The only precaution that needs to be kept in mind is to prevent widening of the femoral guide pin hole or breaking of the cortical bone bridge by the guide pin by an uncontrolled push.


The ACL TightRope RT implant is the first adjustable loop device to allow surgeons to pull the shortening strands in the same direction of the graft.


The ACL TightRope implant eliminates the need for multiple implant sizes and facilitates complete graft fill of short femoral sockets, which are common with anatomic ACL drilling. The passing sutures are then pulled from the lateral side, with the TightRope RT button being pulled into the femoral socket under direct arthroscopic vision Fig 1Video 1. The patient is lying supine with the knee and hip flexed, and the arthroscope has been inserted through the anterolateral portal.

Transepiphyseal replacement of the anterior cruciate ligament in skeletally immature patients. Thank you for your patience. At this crucial juncture, no further pulling force is applied.


Graft fixation with the TightRope RT is a recent technique, and complications with this technique have not yet been reported. The sockets are made and graft is prepared and looped with the Tight Rope RT as described in the literature.

Another mark is made on the graft, with measurement from its femoral end, equal to the length of the femoral socket. The femoral socket is then created with a drill of the size determined from the diameter of the graft, leaving about 7 to 10 mm tighhtrope cortical bone bridge laterally.

Using a single hamstring tendon looped between 2 ACL TightRope implants allows for simplified graft passing and tensioning from the femoral and tibial side in any degree of flexion. This can potentially result in late graft loosening after ischemic necrosis of the interposed tissues. Please try again, or try refreshing the page.
