Internal Bracing Reinforcement

Internal Bracing Augmentation (or ‘Reinforcement’) with Fibre Tape has really transformed PCL surgery worldwide. It is also used to strengthen up ACL or extra articular grafts. Where we have really seen a difference is in the multiligaments and the PCLs because we always used to have slackness in the PCL (or 90% of the time we would).
