Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) Reconstruction

MCL reconstruction is typically performed when the MCL is severely injured or in cases of chronic MCL laxity. During an MCL reconstruction, autograft or allograft tissue is used to reconstruct the injured ligament. Graft-fixation technology for MCL reconstruction has evolved from staples, posts and washers, and interference screws to less invasive and easier-to-use suspensory fixation, including the TightRope® implant, and all-suture anchor technology, such as the Knee FiberTak® anchor.

Adding the InternalBrace™ technique to an MCL repair may result in lower failure rates and less residual laxity post-op as well as shorter immobilization times and faster return to play.1 Additionally, FiberTape® suture has been used for more than 15 years in more than 4 million cases, including tendon and ligament-bridging repairs.

The 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. The InternalBrace surgical technique is intended only for soft-tissue-to-bone fixation and is not cleared for bone-to-bone fixation.
