Force Fiber® Orthopedic Suture
Available from Teleflex Medical OEM
• Proprietary coreless braid configuration, developed by Teleflex Medical OEM, enhances the suture’s performance and handling characteristics. It creates a pliable, easy-to-handle orthopedic suture that offers greater tensile strength than polyester and polyblend suture.
• Force Fiber® suture allows tighter loop security during the tying process and superior knot break strength.* The suture’s low knot profile allows precise knot placement and a smooth tie down.
• This suture significantly outperforms polyblend suture of comparable size for straight tensile and knot tensile strength.
• Force Fiber® suture is prepared from an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) material that is incredibly strong and durable. The suture is flexible, nonabrasive, and has a silk-like feel that is gentle on tissue and gloves.
Multiple color and patterns options make Force Fiber® suture ideal for complex, multi-strand procedures where better visibility and suture differentiation is a must.
Force Fiber® suture is indicated for use in approximation and/or ligation of soft tissue, including the use in cardiovascular surgeries and use of allograft tissue for orthopedic surgeries. Please note: Force Fiber® suture is indicated for cardiovascular use only in the United States.
