Surgeons are commonly faced with tissues that are either inherently weak, or weakened by health issues, preventing very reliable repairs or limiting available repair approaches. Our technology works differently to address these needs.
Traditional sutures, staples and so on are limited by the capacity of the living tissues to withstand normal forces. Our products utilize shear force, holding better in challenging repairs.
Our products meet USP requirements for multifilament sutures, and it is not necessary to vary technique from that of a conventional, braided suture.
For example, FiberSecure has integrated easily and successfully with modern bone anchors in preclinical trials.
