Title: A TIBIAL ANCHOR ARRANGEMENT FOR A SHORT SURGICAL GRAFT USED IN ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT KNEE JOINT RECONSTRUCTION
Abstract:
A tibial anchor arrangement for a short surgical graft used in an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction including an expansion sleeve adapted to be inserted into a hollowed tibial recess of a tibia bone of a damaged knee joint, wherein an external wall of the expansion sleeve wedges strands of a single synthetic strip against a wall of the hollowed tibial recess when the expansion sleeve has been inserted into the hollowed tibial recess and a screw internally receivable into the expansion sleeve, wherein as the screw is internally received into the expansion sleeve when the expansion sleeve has been inserted into the hollowed tibial recess, the external wall of the expansion sleeve laterally expands outwardly anchoring the strands of the single synthetic strip to the hollowed tibial recess.
