Improving Outcomes Through Biologic ACL Augmentation
Chad D. Lavender, MD (Scott Depot, WV), discusses how to improve outcomes through biologic augmentation of the ACL sockets using bone grafting during ACL reconstruction, a quadriceps tendon graft all-inside technique, and the InternalBrace™ technique. Dr. Lavender explains ACL challenges, presents surgical cases, and details a fertilized ACL clinical trial.
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.
