Biomechanical Evaluation of Spring Ligament Augmentation With the FiberTape Device in a Cadaveric Flatfoot Model (2019)

Background: The structural importance of the spring ligament complex in arch stability has been described. Furthermore, the pathology of this complex is often noted in patients with posterior tibial tendon dysfunction. The purpose of this biomechanical study was to evaluate spring ligament repair alone versus augmentation with the FiberTape device in a cadaveric flatfoot model.
