Brace post ACI/TTT
« on: June 07, 2008, 04:29:53 AM »
Can anyone tell me what type/brand or brace is generally used after an ACI procedure?  I'm having combined ACI/TTT, with the ACI being done on the medial femoral condyle.  I realize that different surgeons most likely use different braces and models, but any reply is appreciated.  If anyone has had an ACI with Dr. Minas (my OS) and knows what brace he uses, that would be especially great!
Thanks in advance,
Redlotus

Hello There, I did not have ACI/TTT together, so I don't know for sure what brace you would have.  I did have a TTT though and woke up with an immobilizer.  2 weeks later, I "graduated" to a post op ROM brace to use for a few more weeks until I was stronger.  I would try posting this in the Arhtritis section where the ACI people post.  I bet you could get more info there since some of those people have had the combo ACI/TTT.  Diana, in the post op section had it too if you want to check out her diary.  Good luck!
