Features and benefits

  • Continuous longitudinal yarns provide sufficient strength to allow early mobilization
  • Flat central open weave section acts as a scaffold that encourages tissue ingrowth, expediting healing in the region of the tear
  • Open weave section provides resistance to cutting through tissue, allowing tensioning when pulling the tissue towards its site of attachment to the bone
  • Both ends taper into a strong, thin cord with sealed tips, allowing easy passage through soft tissue and bone tunnels
  • Undulating structure of the thin cord ensures both a secure and small knot
