LARS® (Ligament Augmentation
and Reconstruction System) is a system of synthetic fibers
designed to mimic the mechanical & anatomic ligament
The LARS® artificial ligament is made of industrial
strength polyester fibers.
SHAPE & SIZE
The shape and size reproduce the structure and function
of the anatomical elements involved and vary according
to the joint being repaired.
The polyester fibers and the original design of the knit
have been tested for: stretching, rupture, and wear. The
studies have shown that the LARS® artificial ligament
is quite resistant to flexion, torsion, traction, and
The design also possesses biocompatible properties to
human tissue, because the intra-articular longitudinal
fibers allow for tissue ingrowth (fibroblastic culture).
