LockDown™ ACJ Ligament

The most effective solution for ACJ reconstruction

The LockDown™ device is a polyester surgical mesh device designed to provide fixation during the healing process following acromioclavicular separation due to coracoclavicular ligament disruption. This surgical mesh is used for acromioclavicular joint or coracoclavicular ligament reconstruction.

With over 2000 implantations per annum and 14,000 implantations realized over a 13 year period across International markets, LockDown has proven to be the number one choice for surgeons in many countries worldwide. LockDown offers excellent clinical results and patient satisfaction combined with a simple reproducible surgical technique.

The LockDown™ device is CE marked and gained FDA approval in February 2011.

This simple procedure requires little or no physiotherapy. The patients’ arm is supported by a sling at 2 weeks post operatively, and the most enduring activities (including contact sports) can be resumed at 12 weeks.

LockDown™ is designed and manufactured by LockDown Medical Ltd. www.lockdownmedical.com
