Artificial ligaments for joint applications and including resistive retaining and end

Linares of Linares Medical Devices, Michigan, incorporated a ligament into a prosthetic joint as a plasticized, elongated and deformable material.  A fibrous material is internally disposed within the deformable material, the fibrous material terminating in first and second enlarged bead portions arranged in proximity to enlarged pocket defined ends associated with the deformable materials.  First and second bones define a joint region there between, the deformable end pockets and bead portions being inserted through associated holes defined in joint proximate locations associated with the bones, so that actuation of a projection location of the fibrous material causes the bead portions to outwardly deflect the end pockets, resulting in the ligaments being anchored in place between the bones.
