The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is cited as the most frequently injured ligament in the knee. The standard treatment of ACL injury remains ligament reconstruction followed by a postoperative physiotherapeutic procedure. During the reconstruction, the torn ligament can be replaced with an autograft or an allograft. A synthetic ligament is also one of the available graft options. Synthetic grafts in ruptured ACL treatment have been used as scaffolds, stents, or prostheses. The story of using synthetic materials in ACL deficient knee treatment started in the beginning of the 20th century with the usage of silk and silver fibers...

BACKGROUND: Graft choice for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is of critical importance. Various grafts have been used so far, with autografts long considered the optimal solution for the treatment of ACL-deficient knees. Limited data are available on the long-term survivorship of synthetic grafts. PURPOSE: To compare the functional outcome and survivorship of ACL reconstructions performed using the LARS (ligament augmentation and reconstruction system) ligament and the ABC (active biosynthetic composite) purely polyester ligament...

Artificial ACL grafts are structural ties, designed to resist tension, but not designed to undergo biologic ligamentization by the host. Strategically, an artificial ACL graft may be used as reinforcement to augment ACL repair, ACL autograft, ACL allograft, or tissue-engineered ACL. Most artificial ACL grafts have had poor reported outcomes. However, the Ligament Augmentation and Reconstruction System (LARS) artificial ACL graft shows positive clinical outcomes.

Damage to knee articular ligaments causes important functional problems and adversely affects particularly the stability of the knee joint. Several methods were developed in order to repair damage to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), which employ autografts, allografts, as well as synthetic ligaments. One such synthetic scaffold, the ligament advanced reinforcement system (LARS) synthetic ligament is made of non-absorbing polyethylene terephthalate fibers whose structure allow tissue ingrowths in the intra-articular part, improving the stability of the joint...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical reconstruction has been increasingly recommended for the surgical management of posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) ruptures. While the choice of tissue graft still remains controversial. Currently both hamstring tendon autograft (HTG) and ligament advanced reinforcement system (LARS) artificial ligament are widely used but there are seldom reports on the comparisons of their clinical results. Our study was aimed to assess the effectiveness of these two grafts. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-five patients with unilateral PCL rupture were enrolled in this retrospectively study...

Symptomatic instability of the sternoclavicular (SC) joint is an uncommon problem. The majority of patients respond well to nonoperative measures, although a small number require reconstructive surgery for symptomatic instability, with varying surgical techniques reported in the literature. We report a series of 5 operations (in 4 patients) with chronic SC joint instability treated by reconstruction of SC and costoclavicular ligaments using an artificial ligament weave (LARS: Ligament Augmentation and Reconstruction System)...

BACKGROUND: Introduction of a new generation of artificial ligaments for ACL reconstruction, the Ligament Augmentation and Reconstruction System (LARS), gives promising clinical results [1]. The current literature supports the use of LARS from short to medium term. To go even further to improve the biocompatibility of this biomaterial, poly(sodium styrene sulfonate) (polyNaSS) was grafted onto its surface. Studies using sheep animal model showed improvement of knee functionalities with this grafted artificial ligament and a better adhesion of human cell lines...

This study investigates the impact of polystyrene sodium sulfonate (PolyNaSS) grafting onto the osseo-integration of a polyethylene terephthalate artificial ligament (Ligament Advanced Reinforcement System, LARS™) used for Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL). The performance of grafted and non-grafted ligaments was assessed in vitro by culturing human osteoblasts under osteogenic induction and this demonstrated that the surface modification was capable of up-regulating the secretion of ALP and induced higher level of mineralisation as measured 6 weeks post-seeding by Micro-Computed Tomography...
