Design

The INTRAFIX fastener offers an expanded size selection and line-to-line sizing. It also features a patented screw and sheath design that enhances bone-to-graft contact and strength through:

  • Concentric screw placement.
  • 360º graft placement.
  • Improved engagement.
Strength

Tested in human cadaver bone, the INTRAFIX system demonstrated excellent fixation, with >1000N pull-out strength1. Tested in an independent study (against five other tibial soft tissue fixation systems), INTRAFIX demonstrated the highest strength and stiffness with the lowest graft displacement.1
