Orthopedic and Robotic Surgery Solutions
High Strength Braided Suture and Tapes:
Braided Sutures and Tapes are some of the most critical products used in orthopedics and device assembly. Braided Sutures and Tapes can be made from either monofilament or multifilament polymer yarns or metal wires. The choice of which should be used is highly dependent upon the clinical application and surgery type.
Cables and Tethers:
Similar to sutures, and braids, cables and tethers are complex braided yarns that are used for applications that require significant strength or load bearing capability. Often used to stabilize structures and add strength to damaged tissue after a major repair as seen in an allograft placement, tendon and ligament repair, joint replacement, and fracture repair.
Surgical Meshes and Patches:
Surgical mesh is typically a flat, open construction textile often used to reinforce bone or tissue and can play a role in promoting healing by allowing for cellular in-growth. Surgical meshes can be knits or weaves, the choice of which is dependent on the application and the particular performance and physical features required.
Artificial Tendons, ligaments and Biomimics:
Woven polymers can be excellent tools to create an artificial tendon or other connective tissue replacement or repair, allowing for both strength and flexibility. Since ligaments are bands of durable and resilient flexible fibrous tissue, textiles lend themselves nicely to taking their place when they are damaged or torn.
Soft Tissue Fixation
In the sports medicine market soft tissue fixation products are often used in the repair and reconstruction of soft tissue injuries in the shoulders, knees, hips, and extremities. Soft tissue repair devices often include the use of high strength braided sutures and anchors to reattach soft tissue to bone.
