Tendons and ligaments connect muscles to bones, making it possible to do all kinds of physical activities. Overuse or damage to tendons over a long period of time causes the collagen fibers that make up the tendons to form small tears, a condition called tendinosis. Ligaments are composed of collagen fibers and hold bones together, stabilizing joints and controlling the range of motion. Tendons and ligaments have poor blood supply, and they do not easily recover from the damage caused by sprains, strains, and repetitive motion.

CytoFix Tissue Autograft is tissue components of the patient’s buffy coat that includes Leukocytes, Erythrocytes, Fibrinogen, Platelets and Plasma. It provides a concentrated harvested tissue to be used as living tissue graft. The graft is immediately implanted to the patient by the surgeon to seal, fill and replace tissue lost due to injury with autologous cells that are inherently compatible with the patient’s physiology.

Patients can see a significant improvement in symptoms. This may eliminate the need for more aggressive treatments such as long term medication or surgery, as well as a remarkable return of function.
