In this video, Dr Tashman discusses using braces after multi-ligament surgery and PCL deficient or lacking knees. He concludes that a not all braces are the same and dynamic force braces may reduce knee instability in the PCL-deficient knee and protect the healing of the PCL graft after surgery. He however states that there is not enough research and that further studies on dynamic force braces needs to be done.
Watch the advanced rehabilitation issues for multi-ligament knee injuries.
