MonoMax® Suture is made with Tepha’s Monofilament fiber.
Tornier’s BioFiber® Surgical Mesh, intended for shoulder rotator cuff repair utilizes TephaFLEX® fiber.
John W. Sperling, MD, MBA, Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, commented, “Surgery for the re-attachment of tendons or ligaments to bone, such as a rotator cuff repair, can be associated with a later re-tear at the attachment site, especially in patients with compromised healing function. BioFiber’s unique mesh design and its biocompatible resorbable polymer composition provide an ideal scaffold to support healing at these surgical attachment sites. Combined with its ease of use and cost effectiveness, I have found the BioFiber Surgical Mesh to be a useful product in my practice to reinforce attachment sites during tendon and ligament surgeries.”1
