For Tissue Approximation

Poly-Tapes are open weave mesh implants which are available in various widths (ranging from 5-50 mm) and lengths (ranging from 500-800 mm).  They are also available as single thickness or tubular devices.


Poly-Tapes are intended for tissue approximation, including use in reconstructing damaged or torn ligaments, tendons and other soft tissues according to the surgeon’s own preferred technique, and at his/her discretion. Particular indications include:

  • Quadriceps tendon reconstruction
  • Patellar tendon reconstruction
  • Medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction
  • Achilles tendon reconstruction
  • Stabilization of the dislocated peroneal tendon
  • Stabilization of the dislocated acromioclavicular joint with associated disruption of the coracoclavicular ligaments,

Poly-Tapes are also supplied for soft tissue (tendon and ligaments) fixation to bone with a Fastlok fixation device during orthopaedic reconstruction procedures.

Features and benefits

  • No requirement to harvest a soft tissue graft to reconstruct the ligament or tendon; reduces morbidity
  • Open weave structure acts as a scaffold, allowing tissue ingrowth which protects the Poly-Tape from abrasion and adds additional strength as it matures
  • Made from woven multifilament high tenacity polyester (polyethylene terephthalate) fibre, providing a soft flexible structure with high strength
  • Large range of sizes available to suit varying patient anatomy
  • Heat sealed ends prevent fraying and facilitate easier passage through bone tunnels and soft tissue
  • Compatible with the Fastlok™ fixation device, for fast, strong, fatigue resistant fixation
  • Tube-Tapes provide a double thickness mesh structure, which offers high strength with a reduced width
