Arthrex Fiberwire 4-0 Braided Polyblend Suture, Blue with Reverse Cutting Needle
Part # AR-7230-02 Exp 7/13
Orthopaedic surgeons enthusiastically endorse Arthrex 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, stiffness, knot strength and knot slippage with much less elongation. Extensive biocompatibility, animal and clinical testing prove that Arthrex FiberWire demonstrates biocompatibility characteristics equivalent to a standard polyester suture.
Trusted by leading orthopaedic surgeons worldwide, Arthrex FiberWire has contributed to successful surgical outcomes in over one million orthopaedic surgical procedures. It provides added confidence that the final repair will be strong, and postoperative rehabilitation can be carried out earlier to prevent fibrosis and stiffness. FiberWire is available with or without needles and can be utilized in soft tissue repairs in the elbow, forearm or ankle. It is also indicated for use with the Meniscal Viper in meniscal repair.
In Perfect sealed condition but expired. Not for human use in the US.
Expiration dates have mostly to do with sterilization and not the integrity of the product. The manufacturers sterilize the products after they are packaged and it lasts so many years. The only products we caution customers about are ones that are absorbable or drug coated.
There is a $125 minimum order due to the cost of shipping.
