InternalBrace™ Ligament Augmentation Repair in Conjunction With Open Brostrom Surgical Technique
Nicholas T. Gates, MD (Englewood, KY), demonstrates the InternalBrace™ ligament augmentation repair performed with an open Brostrom procedure. This simple and reproducible technique uses BioComposite SwiveLock® anchors and FiberTape® suture.
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.
