There are several different graft options that can be used for anterior cruciate ligament/posterior cruciate ligament (ACL/PCL) reconstruction procedures. One of the most traditional methods is the use of bone-patellar tendon-bone (BTB) grafts, where the ends of the graft contain bone that is then fixed to the femoral and tibial tunnels.

The other option for surgeons is to use soft tissue grafts (either hamstring or quadriceps tendon) that require the soft tissue to be fixed to the tibial and femoral bone. For procedures using BTB grafts, only interference screws are used for anchoring the tendon or ligament of the graft to the bone. In contrast, for procedures that use soft tissue grafts, a variety of other devices are available to fixate the graft to the femoral and tibial tunnels. For every ACL/PCL repair procedure, both the tibia and femur are involved in fixating the new tissue between these two bones. Fixation to the tibia differs from femoral fixation with respect to the devices used and thus the ACL/PCL fixation market is composed of the tibial fixation and femoral fixation segments.

The ACL/PCL fixation device market can be segmented into tibial fixation and femoral fixation devices. Tibial fixation includes interference screws, intratunnel fixation devices and washer and post devices. Femoral fixation devices include interference screws, cross-pins, intratunnel fixation devices and cortical fixation devices.
