 Anthony Orozco, second from left, the product manager for Arthrex Orthobiologics and Vet Systems, uses a fake canine joint to demonstrate how to use the Arthrex Tightrope technique to repair an injured cranial cruciate ligament in a dog. It involves making tunnel incisions in the femoral and tibia bones at precise locations, to pass through strands of the Tightrope prosthetic ligament in a way that will mimic the natural ligament and provide optimal range of motion. Arthrex started its Vet Systems division in 2004. The privately held company applies its expertise in orthopedics and biologics for humans to develop more than 100 products so far for horses and dogs.
