FiberWire suture is a new generation of polyester suture with a long chain polyethylene core. FiberWire has greater strength than similar sized polyester suture with superior feel, smooth tie ability and lower knot profile. FiberWire is the ideal suture for most orthopaedic soft tissue repairs, virtually eliminating suture breakage during knot tying.
All sizes of FiberWire have greater strength than polyester suture with the same diameter, with smoother feel and tie ability. Cyclic loading of #2 FiberWire resulted in 1,000,000 cycles without failure compared to 160,000 cycles of standard #2 polyester to failure.
All FiberWire are sterile and single use.
