DYNACORD™ Suture is a high-strength orthopedic suture that is designed to minimize repair laxity in order to preserve consistent tissue approximation while improving footprint compression.1,7   Unlike other high-strength orthopedic sutures which may experience laxity5, DYNACORD Suture is uniquely designed to shorten when compression is lost, thereby minimizing micro-motion and gap formation.1,3


Features & Benefits

DYNACORD™ Suture innovative technology has been designed to maintain a more stable repair environment as compared to tested sutures currently on the market. *

DYNACORD™ Suture is designed to expand radially and contract axially when laxity is present to allow the suture to minimize negative aspects of a repair such as suture laxity, creep, and knot slippage. 1,2,6,*

DYNACORD™ Suture maintains set tissue approximation force, to minimizing gap formation.1,3,*
