    Suture Anchors with DURABRAID Suture

    Suture Anchors with DURABRAID Suture

    Overview


    The unique design of the TWINFIX SUTURE ANCHORS combines high resistance to pullout from our patented thread design with optimal knot tying from the DURABRAID SUTURE.

    DURABRAID SUTURE

    TWINFIX Suture Anchors come preloaded with #2 DURABRAID Suture. DURABRAID  Suture is a unique brand of Smith & Nephew braided polyester suture - an ideal mix of strength, sliding ability, and knot security for shoulder surgeons performing arthroscopic or mini-open procedures. DURABRAID SUTURE requires no special cutting instruments.

    Flexibility and Options

    TWINFIX Suture Anchors are offered in a variety of sizes and materials, with/and without, needles.

    Anchor Design

    Tapered anchor body is mated to the dilator to reduce the insertion torque helping to reduce anchor breakage. Suture eyelets are located deeper in the anchor body to reduce suture pullout under cyclic loading.

    Robust Inserter Handle

    Improved suture track - Ensures smooth suture release.

    External suture posts - Protects and controls the sutures.

    Physical mechanism for grasping sutures - Securely holds anchor on the tip of inserter

    Flat handle surface - Ideal to tap/strike with mallet.
