Vedco PowerCore™ Cruciate Repair Suture, with two needles
A non-absorbable synthetic surgical suture composed of an ultra-high molecular weight braided polyethylene fiber that provides strength superior to most other suture materials used in orthopedic surgeries.
Vedco’s PowerCore™ Cruciate Repair suture helps to eliminate the sharp ends associated with steel and heavy monofilament nylon. PowerCore™ suture will lay down at the knot and provide a more natural feel for the patient.
The curved needle is designed to help promote correct placement while the straight needle is used to pass through the tissue at the most distal point possible. Surgical procedures that may create bone edges and articulating surface abrasion areas may be ideal uses for PowerCore™ where the increased abrasion resistance is critical. PowerCore™ ties easily, but can also be crimped.
• Strong, durable, pliable with polyester core
• Suture breaking during knot tying is virtually eliminated
• 15 times stronger than steel on a weighted basis
• Excellent abrasion resistance
