HS Fiber Sutures

HS Fiber is a non-absorbable braided suture (36 inches) made from fibers of ultra high molecular weight, long-chain linear polyethylene that provide excellent straight pull strength and abrasion resistance, and the Core-locTM design results in high knot strength. The eBraidTM design provides superior handling characteristics. Four colors with a triaxial pattern design provide outstanding visibility and distinguishing features to enhance suture management, particularly important in arthroscopic orthopaedic surgery.
