ATFL and CFL with InternalBrace™ Ligament Augmentation Repair

Lorenzo Gamez, MD (Long Island, NY), discusses his augmented Brostrom procedure using the InternalBrace™ ligament augmentation procedure to repair both the ATFL and CFL.

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.
