Orthopedic surgeons at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland and a specialist in joint and cartilage at the Royal Orthopedic Hospital in Birmingham developed the GraftBolt to improve the rate of surgeries for knee injury, according to Top News Report.
The device is designed to join the bone and ligament with a decreased risk for ligament slips. Studies suggest the device improves the ACL reconstruction and reduces the risk of needing revision surgeries.
