FastThread BioComposite interference screws are a completely new design with a prominent leading and large thread pitch to facilitate screw engagement and advancement. Optimized screw threads improve pullout strength vs longer screws of the same diameter.1 Vented sidewalls and screw geometry decrease material by 22% without losing insertion or fixation strength.2 Arthrex’s proprietary biocomposite material has withstood the test of time with more than a decade of clinical use and millions of implantations.3 Rounded thread and head design may reduce damage to graft on insertion and cycling. Decreased number of screw threads reduces turns and possible graft abrasion and twisting. 20 mm screws are packaged with an insertion sheath.
