GRAFTSITE™ ORTHOMED

GRAFTSITE™

GRAFTSITE™ is designed to assist in the delivery of local anaesthetic to the hamstring donor site during knee ligament reconstruction, surgery offering a purpose-built alternative to improvised devices. GRAFTSITE consists of a flexible, phthalate free, PVC catheter supported by a stainless steel stylet.

Harvesting hamstrings in Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) surgery has been reported to cause significant postoperative donor site pain. Femoral nerve blocks and intra-articular injections widely used in ACL surgery, do not cover the donor site of the hamstring tendons. A number of studies have demonstrated that the use of a local anaesthetic at the donor site reduces postoperative pain.
