AperFix® AM

The Anatomic Implant

Simply Anatomic. Outstanding Results.

Cayenne Medical’s AperFix® AM Femoral Implant offers rigid, aperture fixation to soft tissue multi-ligament reconstruction of the knee. The innovative design of AperFix® AM provides a simple, reproducible technique through your preferred method of femoral socket delivery to achieve a reliable, anatomic reconstruction.

AperFix® AM Femoral Fixation

The AperFix® AM Femoral Implant restores native knee kinematics and provides an optimal healing environment through:

  • Advanced Design
    • 24mm implant  with rounded tip contains less metal and offers equivalent strength and reliability as AperFix® 29mm
  • Anatomic Positioning
    • Shorter, smaller construct allows optimal socket placement within the native footprint
  • Improved Delivery
    • Rounded implant provides easier insertion into the joint space and femoral socket
  • Aperture Fixation
    • Graft compression at aperture promotes biologic healing and soft tissue incorporation
  • PEEK-OPTIMA®
    • Strong, stable platform with radiolucent and bio-inert properties

 

“I love AperFix® AM because I do not have to worry about socket length. Passage into the joint is a lot smoother, and passing the tendons was easier. I will be going back to the AM portal technique now that this implant is available. AperFix® AM provides easy, rigid fixation of the graft.” - Keith Johnson, MD
