Brostrom Repair With InternalBrace™ 2.0 Ligament Augmentation


James McWilliam, MD (New York, NY), provides a cadaveric demonstration of InternalBrace™ ligament augmentation 2.0 with DX FiberTak® anchors with SutureTape following a Brostrom repair. The InternalBrace construct provides a biomechanically superior repair versus standard repairs1 and allows for accelerated rehabilitation2 in patients with ankle instability.
