STRATAFIX Spiral Knotless Tissue Control Device

STRATAFIX Spiral Knotless Tissue Control Devices provide the wound-holding strength of interrupted suturing, with greater security and efficiency than continuous suturing.1-10 In pre-clinical studies, STRATAFIX Spiral Knotless Tissue Control Devices maintained tissue-edge approximation under tension even after 2 cuts to the device.11
