Suture Anchors with ULTRABRAID Suture

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 higher knot breaking strength, increased lubricity, and a stronger resistance to fraying 1. ULTRABRAID Suture is preloaded on all TWINFIX Suture Anchor that have #2 sutures.

In addition to the ULTRABRAID Suture, TWINFIX Suture Anchors have a patented Hi-Lo thread geometry to help attain consistent failure loads in all types of bone quality.

TWINFIX AB Suture Anchors also 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.
