Arthrex AR-1670B Bio-Tenodesis Screw 7 x 10mm PLLA Bioabsorbable Material
Part # AR-1670B Exp 4/14, 1/13
Arthrex AR-1670B Bio-Tenodesis Screw 7 x 10mm may be used in conjunction with #2 or 2-0 FiberWire to facilitate intraoperative tissue tensioning and fixation in a predrilled socket. The predrilled socket minimizes incision length, dissection, and overall morbidity. BioComposite, PLLA, vented PEEK or titanium Tenodesis Screw insertion provides superior and immediate fixation for foot and ankle indications such as Achilles repair, FDL, FHL tendon transfers and lateral ligament stabilization.
Arthrex AR-1670B Bio-Tenodesis Screw 7 x 10mm can also be used for applications in the hand and elbow (UCL, LRTI, distal biceps), shoulder (rotator cuff repair, proximal biceps), as well as collateral ligament repair, reconstruction and secondary graft or suture fixation for ACL, PCL reconstruction. This construct allows for direct tendon-to-bone healing, without hardware prominence.
In Perfect sealed condition but not for human use in the US.
Expiration dates have mostly to do with sterilization and not the integrity of the product. The manufacturers sterilize the products after they are packaged and it lasts so many years. The only products we caution customers about are ones that are absorbable or drug coated.
This is an absorbable item.
There is a $125 minimum order due to the cost of shipping.
