Lower Extremity Fracture Management Using FiberTape® Cerclage

Atul F. Kamath, MD (Cleveland, OH), demonstrates the surgical technique for effectively applying and tensioning FiberTape® cerclage, a nonmetallic alternative to cables and wires traditionally used for fracture management during trauma and reconstruction procedures. Its high-strength, all-suture design and biomechanical properties make FiberTape cerclage an ideal adjunct for stabilization and fixation of periprosthetic femur fractures. After highlighting his technical pearls, Dr. Kamath explains how the low-profile, broad-construct design and intraoperative handling characteristics make FiberTape cerclage ideal for femoral fracture management.
