This design allows the anchor to be inserted flush with the …
    • Corkscrew ft 0 small
      • The family of fully threaded Corkscrew suture anchors was designed for maximum fixation strength and simple insertion. These implants are available in a variety of materials including titanium, PLLA, PEEK, and biocomposite. An internal drive mechanism is combined with a unique FiberWire® suture eyelet to allow for continuous threads along …
    • Knee fiberloop 0 small
      • FiberLoop® is a continuous loop of FiberWire® with multiple needle options. The needles are easy to handle and move freely on the suture to recenter themselves after passing through tissue and facilitating even tension. Graft preparation using the Arthrex SpeedWhip™ technique drastically reduces time spent preparing the graft, uniformly …
    • Knee fiberstick and tigerstick 0 small
      • FiberStick™ is blue FiberWire® with the first 12 inches stiffened to allow convenient and easy advancement through most cannulated instruments, alleviating the need for a monofilament suture or wire suture shuttle. FiberSticks come with a thin plastic tube which protects the stiffened suture until use.  TigerStick® is similar to …
    • Fiberwire 0 small
      • 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® superior strength, soft feel and abrasion resistance that is unequaled in orthopaedic surgery. FiberWire® is the first suture on the market to offer a …
    • Foot and ankle fiberwire 0 small
      • Orthopaedic surgeons enthusiastically endorse FiberWire® for its feel and knot tying ability. The first throw stays down, facilitating reproducible tissue repair.  Sliding knots advance smoothly, easing arthroscopic knot tying procedures. Multiple independent scientific studies documented significant increases in strength-to-failure, …
    • Hip fiberwire 0 small
      • 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 superior strength, soft feel and abrasion resistance that is unequaled in orthopaedic surgery. Suture breakage during knot tying is virtually eliminated, …
    • Foot and ankle fiberwire tigerwire 0 small
      • Part of the FiberWire® family, TigerWire® suture uses the same high strength construction as FiberWire except that it contains a black marker strand in the suture weave. This strand appears as a stripe in the suture, making suture identification easier during joint reconstruction and soft tissue repairs. Trusted by leading orthopedic surgeons …
    • Knee fiberwire and tigerwire 0 small
      • FiberWire® and TigerWire® are both high strength sutures available on implants and also packaged separately with and without needles.  FiberWire is blue and TigerWire is white with a black stripe in the suture, making suture identification easier.
    • Knee fiberwire on straight needles 0 small
      • #2 FiberWire® on Straight Needles comes in two needle options: a single needle attached to 38” of #2 FiberWire; or two needles, each attached to an end of 38” of #2 FiberWire. These are ideal to create a variety locking stitch patterns for avulsions of large tendons such as quadriceps, patellar, pectoral, or Achilles.
    • Fiberwire suture kits 0 small
      • FiberWire® is available in a variety of suture sizes and needle options contained in specialty kits.
    • Fingershield 0 small
      • The FingerShield is a woven polyester sleeve with an embedded radiopaque blue marker designed to reduce pressure induced lacerations to the digits of the hand caused by repetitive knot tying during surgery. They slip right over sterile gloves when needed. The tips are left open to allow pinch grasp of suture strands, while still protecting …
