Sporhopaedics Mathys


Currently common methods for treating ruptures of the anterior cruciate ligament are generally conservative treatment or cruciate ligament reconstruction. In general, autologous grafts from the patellar tendon or the posterior thigh muscles, the hamstring tendon, are used as a replacement for the torn ACL. In some cases, also allografts are used for ligament reconstruction.

The following results are possible benefits for patients treated with Ligamys:

Regeneration of the cruciate ligament:
The anterior cruciate ligament is preserved, and ideally it grows back together, resulting in restoration of connective tissue structures.

No harvesting trauma:
As compared to cruciate ligament reconstruction, treatment with Ligamys does not involve harvesting a replacement tendon from the patient's own body. This reduces the scope of the intervention as well as the risk of surgical complications. This also applies to specific after-effects of the graft harvesting, such as pain during kneeling when the patellar tendon is used, or weakening of the hamstrings when hamstring tendons are used.
