MPFL System™

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.

Indications

The MPFL System is indicated for patients with recurrent patellar subluxation or dislocation.
