|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Ruptured Anterior Cruciate Ligaments||Device: Z-Lig Device: allograft|
Current techniques to reconstruct ruptured ACLs utilize either autologous tissue or allograft (cadaver) tissue. Both treatments have well-documented shortcomings (i.e., autologous tissue exposes patients to increased morbidity and allograft tissue use is limited by global availability and quality).
There are currently no effective artificial materials or xenograft tissue substitutes widely available. The purpose of this multicenter clinical trial is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Z-Lig in Subjects who require reconstruction of primary ruptured anterior cruciate ligaments and compare those results to allograft.
