This may be achieved by a number of methods: a) Partial crimp - see video, does not require additional instrumentation b) Simple tension device requiring a pair of gelpis 091132 c) A dedicated loop tensioner 091132A CCL Tensioning Device A simple unfussy instrument used to create bone tunnels without setting up the power drill. Useful where single holes are required, for example tension band procedures.

To reduce time and instrumentation the self-countersinking instrument incorporates a countersink on the shaft. COUNTERSINKING BONE TUNNEL BORER 001075 Bone Tunnel Borer with Countersink 2.5mm 165mm £55.50 Leader line gripped by thumbscrew. Does not require use of extra crimps - less wasteful. Speed lock type action gives more ‘feel’ than ratchet type. Jaws designed specifically for crimping system. The literature tells us little about the correct tension. We recommend that the anterior draw is eliminated but that an outward rotation of the tibia is not created. Remember over tensioning is as big a technical error as under tensioning!
