The TightRope CCL technique was developed to provide a minimally invasive method for extracapsular stabilization of the cranial cruciate ligament-deficient canine stifle. TightRope CCL seeks to optimize the lateral suture stabilization technique by employing bone-to-bone fixation, an implant with superior strength and stiffness designed specifically for ligament repair, and a method for consistent isometric implant placement.

As such, TightRope CCL can counteract cranial tibial thrust, drawer, and internal rotation while providing optimal joint range of motion.
