The Addition of an “Internal Brace” to Augment the Broström Technique for Lateral Ankle Ligament Instability.

Gordon MacKay, William Ribbans

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This article describes the augmentation of a Broström anatomic repair for ankle lateral ligament instability by the use of the internal brace. The paper describes the role of the internal brace in allowing the natural tissues to progressively strengthen while encouraging early rehabilitation. The surgical technique is outlined and the early clinical outcomes both by the inventor surgeon (G.M.M.) and an independent surgeon (W.J.R.) described.
    Level of Evidence:Diagnostic Level 4. See Instructions for Authors for a complete description of levels of evidence.
