Teleflex Medical OEM Expands Popular Force Fiber Line of Sutures

Teleflex Medical OEM − a global leader in high performance suture for the orthopedic market – is pleased to announce an expanded array of sizes, colors, and patterns for the Force Fiber® family of sutures. Force Fiber® is an innovative combination of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) yarn and a unique, proprietary braid design that creates an incredibly strong, durable, pliable, and lubricious suture.

The Force Fiber® product line now includes:

  • Additional USP sizes: 5-0 through 5
  • More patterns, including cross and stripe
  • Wide selection of solids and multi-colored sutures, including blue, white, green, white/blue, green/white, white/black and white/green

Force Fiber® has a coreless configuration that is flatter than most polyblend sutures allowing each successive knot to better lock up against the last and providing outstanding knot security. Scientific studies indicate Force Fiber® significantly outperforms polyblend suture of comparable size for straight pull tensile and knot tensile strength.

Designed for a wide range of procedures, Force Fiber® is cleared by the FDA for use in approximation and/or ligation of soft tissues, including the use of allograft tissue for orthopedic procedures.
