The Ligamys implant consists of a thread and a monobloc with a spring system. It creates a dynamic connection between femur and tibia, which stabilises the joint and relieves the injured cruciate ligament. The latter can heal up again, and the spring system ensures knee stability in every phase of movement.
Ligamys is implanted arthroscopically – the procedure takes about 45 minutes. Due to the decreasing healing potential, Ligamys must be used within 21 days after rupture.
