Syndesmosis Repair With TightRope® Fixation and AITFL Ligament Repair With InternalBrace™ Ligament Augmentation
Steven Martin, MD (Clemson, SC), demonstrates syndesmosis repair with TightRope® fixation and AITFL repair with the InternalBrace™ ligament augmentation procedure. InternalBrace augmentation provides additional stability during the healing phase to allow early weightbearing.
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.
