Preservation of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) requires vital tissue. Therefore, it is important to keep within a time window of maximum 21 days after the cruciate ligament rupture for optimal success of the surgery.
Preserving the cruciate ligament
No replacement with tendons from the patient’s own body – and hence no risk of complaints at the donor site. No additional weakening of the musculature by tendon removal.
The sensory receptors responsible for the proprioception of the cruciate ligament remain intact.
Preservation instead of replacement
Ligamys is a method for the management of cruciate ligament ruptures in which the patient’s own cruciate ligament and its functions are preserved. In contrast to other methods, no endogenous tendon has to be sacrificed. Until the torn cruciate ligament grows together again and can regain its full functionality, the knee joint is dynamically stabilised by the implant.
