TECHNICAL DATA

 

  • Special screwdriver tip design to ease screw insertion
  • Sharp thread at the distal end to facilitate screw insertion
  • Blunt thread reducing graft laceration while ensuring graft fixation strength
  • Short tapered screw design without compromising interference compression
  • Allows circumferential tendon to bone healing proximally
  • A tapered section within the screwdriver connection allows for self-retention of the screw on the screwdriver, thus preventing the screw from undesired disconnecting and falling down
