TThe ExoShape® ACL Fixation System is MedShape’s latest innovation in ACL reconstruction. Made out of MedShape’s proprietary shape memory PEEK Altera®. ExoShape® is the ONLY ALL PEEK device that offers NON-ROTATIONAL aperture soft tissue graft fixation on both the femoral and tibial sides to achieve complete anatomic ACL reconstruction. Compatible for both transtibial and anteromedial approaches, ExoShape® Femoral comes pre-loaded on a delivery system with a flexible rod to facilitate non-line of sight delivery along a curved path in the joint. Here are some other exciting features of the ExoShape® ACL Fixation System:

 

exo5ExoShape® FEMORAL Soft Tissue Fastener


An Initial Shape for Easy Insertion

  • Tendon Loop Maximizes Graft Length in Tunnel (at least 20 mm)

  • Compressed Geometry reduces insertion forces

  • Low Profile Surface Texture provides fixation without damaging the graft



A Final Shape for Secure Fixation

  • Superior Fixation into cancellous bone achieved via expansion of Shape Memory Wings

  • Expandable Block Lock technology provides Graft Compression and Aperture Fixation

 

ExoShape® TIBIAL Soft Tissue Fastener


  • Two-sided compressed profile allows Accurate Anatomic Placement of graft bundles

  • Non-rotational deployment maintains Preferred Graft Orientation

  • Desired Graft Tension maintained during fixation using the “closed force loop” deployment method

  • 360° radial expansion of Sheath enables Strong, Secure Fixation

  • Low profile surface texture and non-rotational insertion provides Total Graft Protection
