FiberWire® suture is constructed of a multi-strand, long chain ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) core with a braided jacket of polyester and UHMWPE that gives FiberWire suture superior strength, soft feel and abrasion resistance that is unequaled in orthopedic surgery. Suture breakage during knot tying is virtually eliminated, which is especially critical during arthroscopic procedures. FiberWire suture represents a major advancement in orthopedic surgery.
