Hunter Tendon Implants
Temporary implant designed for use in stage one of the two-stage procedure for the reconstruction of flexor and extensor tendons in individuals having significant hand tendon injury.
Hunter-Salisbury Technique Two-stage flexor tendon reconstruction

Rods are temporarily implanted to replicate the natural tendon allowing a pseudosynovial sheath to form.


Typically leave implanted for 2 to 6 months.


Remove implant once tendon bed matures to the point where it can nourish and lubricate a tendon graft. Perform tendon graft with palmaris or plantaris tendon.
