EDB InternalBrace™ Ligament Augmentation Repair
In situations when the plantar plate is irreparable or the collateral ligaments need to be restored, surgeons have the option to perform an extensor digitorum brevis tendon transfer with the InternalBrace™ ligament augmentation procedure using LabralTape™ suture. This technique gives surgeons a great amount of variability for correction of any transverse and sagittal plane deformities by simply altering the location and direction of their bone tunnels.
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.
