Extreme strength, minimal stretch and good abrasion characteristics make LigaFiba an ideal material for lateral sutures. LigaFiba for any given diameter is more than twice as strong as monofilament nylon. The loop may be either tied or crimped at the end of the procedure.
Lateral sutures are supplied sterile with size appropriate cruciate needle on one end and a straight round bodied needle at the other.
LigaFiba is also available as a sterile length of material without needles for use with suture anchors or for lateral suture with swaged curved and straight needles.
LigaFiba is extremely tough and cutting it with normal scissors will damage them, therefore we recommend using our LigaFiba Scissors.
