Ligament bracing–augmented cruciate ligament sutures: biomechanical studies of a new treatment concept (2014)

Abstract: Background: In the context of acute knee dislocations, suture repair of ruptured cruciate ligaments leads to good clinical results in 80% of cases. Disadvantages are low primary stability and subsequently secondary elongation of the sutured ligaments. In the present study, we compared primary stability of suture repair, reinforced by different suture augments, to cruciate ligament reconstruction…..
