InternalBrace™ Technique for Brostrom Repair

Brostrom repair with the InternalBrace™ procedure provides additional fixation of the repaired ligament back down to bone during the healing process, allowing early mobility during recovery and a quicker return to activity.1 The InternalBrace 2.0 surgical technique provides surgical versatility with added size and material options. It comes with a talus offset guide that allows for reproducible anatomic placement of the talus SwiveLock® anchor. Surgeons can drill, tap, and implant the SwiveLock anchor through the guide. The InternalBrace technique allows the surgeon to support the primary Brostrom repair of soft tissue to bone for lateral or medial ankle instability repair and can be used for chronic ankle injuries and revisions.
