InternalBrace™ Procedure For A Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) Repair

The MCL InternalBrace procedure consists of a 2 mm-wide FiberTape® suture that spans the distance between two Knotless SwiveLock® anchors to augment, or enhance, the fixation points of the primary MCL repair by expanding the area of approximation during the healing process. FiberTape sutures have been proven safe and effective with over 15 years’ experience and over 3.8 million uses, including tendon and ligament-bridging repairs.

InternalBrace surgical technique is intended only to support the primary repair and is not intended as a replacement for the standard of care using biologic augmentation in a primary repair. InternalBrace surgical technique is intended only for soft-tissue-to-bone fixation and is not cleared for bone-to-bone fixation.
