  • One size fits all [4 tendon spacers in one]
  • Simplified surgical technique
  • Optimally designed for two-step reconstructive surgery of the flexor and extensor tendons


  • By design, UTS helps to restore the maximum anatomical space allowed by the digital channel, creating a pseudo-synovial sheath as large as possible.
  • The smooth surface of the STU allows the formation of the pseudosynovial envelope used for autograft implantation during the second stage of the reconstructive procedure.
  • UTS can also be used as a physical support for the reconstruction of the digital channel.
  • High performance silicone elastomer.
  • STU is radiopaque [loaded with barium sulphate].


UTS has a unique patented design, its oval cross area varies in size along the length of the device, as shown in the drawing. Its major diameter [A] is always twice its minor diameter [B].
