Cayenne Medical announced today that their AperFix System has shown promise as a means for reconstruction of the posterior cruciate ligament PCL in a study published in the February 2010 issue of Orthopedics. In the study, six patients average age = 36 years underwent PCL reconstruction using the AperFix System, and all six had restored knee stability and range of motion at six months after surgery. The system, which is currently FDA approved for use in ACL reconstruction, is implanted using a single-incision arthroscopy.
