Extreme strength, minimal stretch and good abrasion characteristics make LigaFiba® an ideal material for lateral sutures. The loop may be either tied or crimped at the end of the procedure. LigaFiba® for any given diameter is more than twice as strong as monofilament nylon. Lateral sutures are supplied sterile with size appropriate cruciate needle on one end and a straight round bodied needle at the other. Supplied Sterile.
