Syndesmosis TightRope® XP Implant System

The Syndesmosis TightRope® XP implant system features a unique delivery mechanism that allows surgeons to insert the implant without pulling a needle through the medial skin. Tensioning handles and a new trocar-tipped drill bit have been added to the implant system. It is available in stainless steel and titanium.

Advantages of the Syndesmosis TightRope implant system:

• Improved reduction when compared to syndesmosis screws1

• Improved maintenance of reduction when compared to syndesmosis screws2

• No need for routine implant removal

• Supports early weightbearing and accelerated rehabilitation1

• Allows for physiologic motion of the syndesmosis following reduction and fixation

• Improved patient outcomes compared to syndesmosis screws3
