TLS: NEW – Extra-articular ACL reconstruction with pivot-shift reduction
All-inside reconstruction technique of the cruciate ligament of the knee using a short (DT4) graft, with more than 10 years of hindsight.
48,000 patients around the world have been treated with this technique.
The full range of TLS surgical options has been supplemented this year by a simple extra-articular pivot-shift reducing reconstruction technique at DI2, after single-bundle reconstruction of the ACL.
Fixation of ACL reconstruction and EAR both occur at the femur, the isometric point of the tibia is identified, then two strands of DI are sutured and fixed with a low volume biocomposite screw.
