Graft Fixation Systems

GFS Mini, GFS II, GFS Ultimate and GFS Naked

Anika’s portfolio of graft fixation systems (GFS) is designed for efficiency and ease of use, thereby optimizing patient outcomes. The GFS family of devices are indicated for use in the fixation of ligaments and tendons in patients requiring ligament or tendon repair.

Our GFS products are suspensory fixation devices recommended for use in the fixation of ligament or tendon repairs. The GFS Mini features a small button size requiring a stepped tunnel technique. The GFS II and GFS Naked devices include a larger button that may eliminate the need for a stepped tunnel technique and are an excellent choice for revision surgeries. The GFS Ultimate combines the convenience of adjustability with the strength and stiffness of conventional fixed-length loop devices.
