ACL Preservation With the TightRope® Fixation System
Michael Bradley, MD (Wakefield, RI), demonstrates an ACL primary repair using TightRope® fixation with repair sutures to reapproximate the ACL to the femoral wall. Additionally, Dr. Bradley reinforces the repair with FiberTape® suture for the InternalBrace™ technique.
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.
