Arthrex™ MPFL Biocomposite Implant System

Content Contributor

The Arthrex™ MPFL Biocomposite Implant System is for medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction which replicates the native shape of the MPFL through a double-bundle technique. This technique effectively limits patella rotation throughout range of motion, helping to minimize postoperative instability. Additionally this technique, if accomplished directly and anatomically, can allow for more aggressive rehabilitation protocols and earlier return to activity. Specifically, this implant system incorporates the use of a femoral template to ensure proper placement of the graft in the femur. This position provides a static fixation point that equalizes the tension across the graft in flexion and extension, thus helping minimize stress across the patellofemoral joint.
