The Acumed Tension Band Pin System is the first interlocking solution designed to provide low-profile, secure fixation for patella, olecranon, and malleolar fractures to minimize soft tissue irritation and postoperative pin migration. This innovative solution is designed to minimize post-surgical complications associated with traditional tension band pinning with K-wires.The Acumed Tension Band Pin System features an innovative method intended to minimize pin migration. An eyelet is located on the proximal end of the stainless steel pin. By passing the cerclage wire through the eyelet, the pin is secured, minimizing migration of the pins postoperatively. Capturing the pin is designed to allow compression to be maintained across the fracture or osteotomy site.
