The ZipTight Fixation System for Ankle Syndesmosis is a low profile, knotless suture fixation system featuring ZipLoop Technology. It provides a fixation alternative to rigid stainless steel screws for repairing ankle syndesmosis joint disruptions. The ZipTight Fixation System features a smaller version of Biomet Sports Medicine’s easy-to-flip ToggleLoc Fixation device for medial side fixation and a round button for lateral fixation connected by MaxBraid suture. The ZipTight Fixation System is available with either titanium or stainless steel buttons. The ZipTight Fixation System for Ankle Syndesmosis allows for micro-motion during healing which more closely mimics the patient’s true joint mechanics.
