Preservation of the ACL
Dynamic intraligamentary stabilisation (DIS) represents an alternative treatment method for ruptures of the anterior cruciate ligament. The affected knee joint is dynamically stabilised by the Ligamys implant: A polyethylene thread that is anchored in the femur and tibia follows the natural course of the anterior cruciate ligament and temporarily takes over its function. In doing so, the spring system in the monobloc enables the dynamics needed for movements. The stumps of the anterior cruciate ligament are approximated and can heal, protected by the Ligamys implant.
In contrast to the methods described above, the Ligamys implant offers the patient the possibility of preserving the natural cruciate ligament.
