- Not only is the ACL inelastic and prone to popping, it is incapable of healing itself, causing surgeons to rely on autografts for reconstruction.
- The product containspolyester fibers, an inherently antioxidant and porous biomaterial. and calcium nanocrystals
- While longer-term studies are necessary to evaluate the potential use of the approach in humans, the team is optimistic about the results.
