Anterolateral Ligament Repair With Suture Tape Augmentation (2018)

Abstract; Recent insights into the structure and function of the anterolateral ligament (ALL) of the knee has resulted in a recognition of its contribution in rotational control of the knee. Several ALL reconstruction techniques have been described in the literature. This article describes, with video illustration, a percutaneous repair technique using suture tape augmentation. A…

Percutaneous Medial Collateral Ligament Repair and Posteromedial Corner Repair With Suture Tape Augmentation (2020)

Abstract: The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is among the most commonly injured structures of the knee. Most cases are managed nonoperatively; however, grade III injuries and injuries associated with multiligament injuries to the knee are often managed surgically. MCL reconstruction procedures are the most widely used surgical option, but modern advancements have seen a renewed…

Satisfactory patient-reported outcomes at 5 years following primary repair with suture tape augmentation for proximal anterior cruciate ligament tears (2021)

Abstract: An enhanced understanding of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) healing and advancements in arthroscopic instrumentation has resulted in a renewed interest in ACL repair. Augmentation of a ligament repair with suture tape reinforces the ligament and acts as a secondary stabilizer. This study assesses the 5-year patient-reported outcomes of primary repair with suture tape augmentation…

Combined Anterior Cruciate Ligament Repair and Anterolateral Ligament Internal Brace Augmentation: Minimum 2-Year Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (2020)

Abstract: The anterolateral ligament (ALL) contributes to anterolateral rotational stability of the knee. Internal bracing of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and ALL reinforces the ligaments and encourages natural healing by protecting both during the healing phase and supporting early mobilization….

Anterior Cruciate Ligament Repair in a Professional Soccer Player Using Internal Brace Ligament Augmentation: A Case Report Focusing on Rehabilitation (2019)

Abstract: Background: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with hamstring or patellar tendon autograft has been the gold standard for the operative treatment of an ACL rupture for many years. Repair with Internal Brace Ligament Augmentation (IBLA) is a new technique that uses ultra-high strength tape (FiberTape, Arthrex, Naples, FL, USA) to bridge the ligament…… Read…

Anterior Cruciate Ligament Repair Using Independent Suture Tape Reinforcement (2018)

Abstract: Recently there has been renewed interest in primary repair of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Repair of the acute proximal ruptured ACL can be achieved with the independent suture tape reinforcement ACL repair technique. The independent suture tape reinforcement technique reinforces the ligament as a secondary stabilizer, encouraging natural healing of the ligament by…
