This revolutionary polymer-based cerclage system is designed to solve many of the inherent problems of traditional monofilament wire and cabling systems.
Features of the system include:
Fatigue strength superior to both wire and cables thereby reducing complications due to breakage.
The elimination of cable-generated metal particle debris that has been shown to greatly increase wears in adjacent total joints.
No sharp cable ends to irritate patient tissue.
No sharp cable ends to cut surgeon’s gloves or cause “sharps injury”.
Provides long-term dynamic compressive loading across bone fragments to offer the possibility for better healing and increased construct strength.
Unique locking mechanism allows cables to be easily re-tightened, saving time and reducing the number of cables required. And, unlike metal cables, there is no crimping of metal.
Cables are easy and quick to manipulate within the wound.
No metal cable contacting metallic implants.
