The quad tendon SpeedWhip™ rip-stop technique eliminates the weak link in ACL graft preparation by reinforcing the suture-tissue interface with a FiberTag® scaffold. A FiberTag suture is incorporated into the end of the FiberLoop® construct to allow each needle pass to incorporate both graft and the FiberTag scaffold. This construct has been shown to increase the strength over standard stitching alone.1 FiberTag suture can be placed onto a graft end to facilitate attachment of the ACL TightRope® implant.
