A strong synthetic ligament and a knot-free technique ligament 

Medial instability of the shoulder is much more common than lateral or multi-directional instability.

The NOVALIG® ligament fixed with interference screws and/or a cortical button allows for the reconstruction of the medial glenohumeral ligament without the need for postoperative external restraint.

Dr Julien Letesson


NOVALIG® is described as a synthetic ligament - but how is it different from a suture ?

NOVALIG® is much stronger and wider than a suture. Its theoretical strength can reach 8000N. Its special braiding makes it much less abrasive and sharp than FiberTech-type UHMWPE sutures, thus limiting bone shearing effects. It also has a favorable interface for cell colonization.

The NOVALIG® ligament is relatively long, which makes multi-ligament repair possible with a single ligament and several bone anchors.

Why use interference screws for fixation ?

Interference screws provide immediate, atraumatic fixation for the implant and are fully fixed in the bone. They reduce the risks of irritation and early laceration thanks to a large knot.

The mechanical resistance of this type of fixation has made it a gold standard in many human medicine applications.
