Sportspersons will be happy to know that the earlier method of treating rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the knee with screws to keep them together, is now improved with the help of a new device called, GraftBolt.

The  team at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland  who worked on this device said the mechanism works by binding the  bone and ligament together in such a way that the chances of slipping free are much less.

Dr Bin Wang, who led the team, said: "GraftBolt aims to improve the patient's quality of life by successfully repairing their injury first time and improving the quality of bonding of the graft to the bone."
