Recon
ACL Reconstruction Surgery

ACL reconstruction is a surgical procedure that involves repairing the ACL using the body’s own tissue, specifically tendons. This type of treatment is generally recommended for patients who are very active and take part in sports. During an arthoscopic Anterior Cruciate Ligament ACL Surgery, the damaged part of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) will be removed and replaced with e.g. hamstring tendon. A screw will fix and hold the new ligament. The screw will resorb after a couple of weeks.

BEAR
BEAR Acl repair Surgery

The bridge-enhanced ACL repair (BEAR) surgery using the BEAR scaffold. In this technique, the torn ACL tissue is preserved. A whipstitch suture is placed into the tibial stump of the ACL. Small tunnels (4 mm) are drilled in the femur and tibia. An Endobutton with two sutures and the Vicryl sutures attached to it is passed through the femoral tunnel and engaged on the proximal femoral cortex. After sutures are threaded through the BEAR scaffold, tibial tunnel, and secured in place. The BEAR scaffold is then saturated with 10 ml of the patient’s blood, and the tibial stump pulled up into the saturated scaffold. The ends of the torn ACL then grow into the scaffold and the ligament reunites. The new technique of ACL anterior cruciate ligament surgery is still not the golden standard.

Bracing
ACL internal Brace Surgery

When treating the anterior cruciate ligament with the so-called and new ``internal brace technique``, the torn ligament structures of the anterior cruciate ligament tear are not removed and are not replaced by a free tendon implant (cruciate ligament plastic). Rather, they are strengthened in an arthroscopic operation and then banded together again. Therefore, the ACL heals faster and better. Therefore, a sliver is braided into the injured anterior cruciate ligament and thus the anterior cruciate ligament is fixed to the bone again. Furthermore, the new ACL internal brace technique does not destroy the blood supply to the cruciate ligament, contrary to a reconstruction operation of the anterior cruciate ligament.
