All-Dorsal Scapholunate Reconstruction With the InternalBrace Ligament Augmentation Procedure
Steven J. Lee, MD (New York, NY), demonstrates a novel dorsal reconstruction used in conjunction with SutureTape to treat dorsal and central scapholunate ligament tears. Using the InternalBrace™ ligament augmentation procedure produces secures the repair during the healing process. Dr. Lee displays the 3.5 mm x 8.5 mm SwiveLock® SL suture anchor that allows for knotless, low-profile and high-strength fixation1 during reconstructions and other soft-tissue repairs.

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.
