Suture – Tendons & Ligaments Reintegration
SUTUR’LINK® is made of strands of high density polyethylene (UHMWPE) braided with a blue marker wire made of polypropylene to better tailor the product.
SUTUR’LINK® is a non absorbable suture wire of very high mechanical strength. Its properties are among the best of those proposed on the market to realize strong and non removable sutures for orthopedic surgery.
SUTUR’LINK® is crimped with a needle at each extremity:
- One round needle, 3/8 x 25 mm, intended for suturing tendons and ligaments
- One triangular needle, 1/2 x 40 mm, intended for trans-bone reinsertions and tuberosity fixations.
- High tensile strength
- Non absorbable
- Stables knots
- Adapted needles
- Easily visible (color)
- Optimizing foam packaged
SUTUR’ LINK® is indicated for repairing or reinforcing ligaments, closure and/or ligation of soft tissues, and tuberosity reinsertions.
VERY HIGH MECHANICAL PROPERTIES
SUTUR’LINK® has high mechanical properties due to its composition and its manufacturing process.
SUTUR’LINK® is made of several strands of high density polyethylene braided together. This leads to obtain a high strength suture perfectly uniform on all its length.
During braiding process of polyethylene strands, a bleu polypropylene strand is intimately and regularly inserted.
Final product is easily locatable in case of association with others sutures.
SUTUR’LINK® is non absorbable and does not undergo in situ degradation. SUTUR’LINK® is specifically built for strong repair and in cases where long term stability is required like for humeral tuberosity insertion.
High density polyethylene (UHMWPE) and polypropylene are well-known products and of clinical common use since long years.
Thanks to its composition and its manufacturing process, SUTUR’LINK® allows creating strong knots, whose are not sliding and whose are not untying.
The repair realized with SUTUR’LINK® guarantees security and solidity of the suture for a satisfying clinical result.
