The ligamentoplasty is replace a broken graft you can get both the patient and the Bone Bank ligament. We must consider as a ligament fiber bundles forming the containment straps joint. As fibers are being subjected to severe mechanical stresses, often suffer micro-breakages and sometimes, and before large overexertion, complete tears.

It is this latter case, a broken ligament that fundamentally alters the dynamics and articulation joint becomes unstable. This causes a number of pain, plus a functional limitation, and if not repaired properly, can lead to injuries and other degenerative derived from inestabiliadad own. Predominant ligament injuries not only affect the knee, but the man and the ankle and foot are also frequently damaged.
