Comparison of Broström technique, suture anchor repair, and tape augmentation for reconstruction of the anterior talofibular ligament

Abstract:  Purpose Recently, tape augmentation for Broström repair has been introduced in order to improve the primary stability of the reconstructed anterior talofibular ligament
(ATFL). The biomechanical effect of tape augmentation suture anchor (SA) repair is not known yet. The aim of the present study was to compare construct stability of the traditional Broström (TB) repair compared with a stand alone SA repair (SutureTak®, Arthrex) and SA repair combined with tape augmentation (InternalBrace®, Arthrex) internal brace (IB) of the ATFL.
