- What's Included
For Reconstruction of the Medial Patellofemoral Ligament
The MPFL System comprises a 10 mm x 500 mm Poly-Tape implant in conjunction with a 6 mm Fastlok™ fixation device. The Poly-Tape is looped through and around the patella, and secured to the femoral attachment site using the titanium Fastlok staple. The medial patellofemoral ligament is thus reconstructed without the need to harvest soft tissue.
How it Works
The Poly-Tape is sutured to the medial retinacular flap
The Poly-Tape is secured to the femur with a Fastlok
The Poly-Tape is passed through a small (3.2 mm diameter) bone tunnel and passed over the anterior surface of the patella, deep to the anterior retinaculum
