Ankle Syndesmosis Repair Kit



The INVISIKNOT construct enables micro motion between the tibia and fibula,1 which may minimise complications commonly found with rigid screws2

Ankle Syndesmosis Solutions from Smith & Nephew support ankle syndesmotic ligament repair with fibular fractures utilizing a suture tape/button construct.

Innovative Design: Comprised of two stainless steel buttons, one medial and one lateral, connected with ULTRATAPE Suture.

  • Lateral button
    - Easily reduced using a one way sliding knot
    - Fracture kit features a lateral button designed to sit flush in the 3.5mm hole of a Smith & Nephew fracture plate

Flexible: Construct designed to enable micro motion between the tibia and fibula, and designed to eliminate complications commonly found with rigid syndesmotic screws.3

Low profile: No knot stack, lateral knot assembles inside the lateral button.

Reliable: Designed to sustain expected physiological loads during the healing period.4
