N E T • 5 1 Karl Storz Quadriceps Tendon Harvesting System The workhorse grafts for ACL reconstruction have traditionally been for hamstring or patella tendon autografts. However, surgeon interest in quadriceps tendon autograft has increased lately due to its gener- ous cross-sectional area and patient tolerance of the harvest site defect. Karl Storz introduces this new quadriceps tendon harvesting system in order to improve the reliability and ease of harvest, particu- larly when using a minimally invasive technique. Storz promotes the ability of the system to accurately control all six surfaces of the graft — proximal, distal, medial, lateral, superficial and deep — which is critical to achievement of satisfactory outcomes. Competitive pricing is the most effective product strategy to make inroads in the outpa- tient surgery market, and doing so will be key to the success of this new addition.
