The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the key ligaments that help stabilize your knee joint. The ACL connects your thighbone (femur) to your shinbone (tibia). It’s most commonly torn during sports that involve sudden stops and changes in direction 

ACL surgery: ACL Repair or Reconstruction?

ACL tear REPAIR with suture tape and knotless swivel lock anchor and internal bracing with FIBER TAPE:

ACL tear can be repaired if the ACL avulsion has occurred from the femoral end of the ACL and the patient comes within few weeks of the ACL injury. Because of the preservation of the original ACL and proprioception nerve endings over it, the recovery is complete and quick. Fibre Tape Internal Bracing helps in quicker rehabilitation and prevent failure.

All Inside ACL Reconstruction with Fibre Tape Internal Bracing

In the majority of cases, we need to reconstruct the ACL because of the ACL tear anatomy and when the patient comes to us after months of ACL injury. The hamstring tendon is used to reconstruct the new ACL and a sleeve of the original ACL is left covering the new tendon in the knee joint to preserve proprioception nerve endings. The hamstring tendon is fixed to the bones using different implants. Dr. Bora is an expert in All Inside ACL Reconstruction using Tight Rope RTJ, Tight Rope loop, Conical Button with Fibre Tape Internal Bracing { ARTHRX, USA }.

The advantage over conventional bio screw fixation of ACL

  • Pin Size Holes in the Bones instead of Bigger Hole when the screw is used
  • Only one hamstring tendon is harvested instead of 2 when screw is used
  • Initial bracing with fibre tape allows painless walking without support & 90-degree knee bending just a day after surgery.
  • Fibre Tape provides support to the graft & prevents the post-operative graft stretching resulting in more stable & stronger joint.
  • Resume squats & lunges one week after surgery.
  • Jogging resumes after 45 days of surgery instead of 3 months when screw is used
  • Back to running & sports in just 3 months after surgery instead of more than 6 months when screw is used.
  • Painless, Stronger & Faster Recovery
