ACL Primary Repair Using the InternalBrace™ Technique Gets Runner Back on the Trail
When Ellen Bellino tore her ACL, the active runner thought she would be on a long road to recovery. With the help of her surgeon, Gregory S. DiFelice, MD (New York, NY), and an innovative ACL primary repair using the InternalBrace™ technique, Ellen is back on the trail.
The InternalBrace surgical technique is intended only to augment the primary repair/reconstruction by expanding the area of tissue approximation during the healing period and is not intended as a replacement for the native ligament. The InternalBrace technique is for use during soft tissue-to-bone fixation procedures and is not cleared for bone-to-bone fixation.
