    Suture Anchors with ULTRABRAID Suture

    TWINFIX with ULTRABRAID

    Overview

    Strength and Security

    The confidence of a strong, secure shoulder repair begins with ULTRABRAID Suture. This non-absorbable suture is composed of a special ultra high molecular weight (UHMW) polyethylene fiber and features a unique braid configuration. As a result, ULTRABRAID Suture offers special advantages over traditional polyester suture, including a high knot breaking strength, ideal lubricity, and a strong resistance to fraying.

    ULTRABRAID Suture is preloaded on all TWINFIX Suture Anchor that have #2 sutures.

    TWINFIX AB Suture Anchors provide a tapered body that is mated to the dilator to reduce insertion torque, thereby helping to minimize anchor breakage. Suture eyelets are located deeper in the anchor body to reduce suture eyelet failure under cyclic loading.


    TWINFIX Ti Suture Anchors provide secure fixation with a wide range of sizes to match various applications and bone qualities. Anchor cores are matched to the drill size to facilitate insertion while maximizing fixation strength.

    For arthroscopic or mini-open shoulder procedures, trust the strength and security of TWINFIX Suture Anchors with ULTRABRAID Suture.
