Ligament avulsion of the knee - fixed with new device

  • Pre Operation

    Post Operation

     

    This 21 year old girl had a knee injury in which one ligament inside the knee got detached with a piece of bone (fig-1).

    Such bone pieces have to be feedback. Most of the currently used techniques are rather cumbersome and time-consuming. We used a new technique called tight-rope fixation, and got an excellent result (fig-2).
