TruShot® with Y-Knot® Shallow anchors are implanted into the distal fibula and passed through the ATFL
Brostrom repair begins with a small incision made at the fibula’s distal tip and in-line with the ATFL (anterior talofibular ligament). The remaining ATFL is released and a rongour is utilized on the distal fibula to prepare the attachment site of the ATFL. After anchors are implanted and passed through the ATFL, the ATFL is fixated to the fibula using overhand knots.
Depending on tissue quality, the surgeon may choose to augment the ATFL repair with a reinforced bioinductive implant. In these instances, BioBrace® offers time-zero strength and facilitates healing, optimizing the repair and outcomes.1,2
