Bioabsorbable implants are commonly used for orthopaedic intra-articular procedures. They have a theoretical advantage over metal analogues in their secure initial fixation and subsequent degradation with eventual replacement by host tissues. The RIGIDFIX anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) cross pin utilizes polylactic (PLA) pins to give the advantage of 360° bone-to-graft contact at the graft tunnel, with clinically acceptable pull-out strength and proven patient outcomes. This fixation method does, however, have the disadvantages of local tissue response, such as inflammation and swelling. This article reports the case of implant migration and the loose body presenting as a subcutaneous collection.
