Category: Graft Preparation
A global knee ethnography study determined that the process of harvesting and preparing grafts for use in ACL reconstruction is a tedious, inefficient and time-consuming process.1 The SPEEDTRAP™ System is a whipstitching device designed to prepare grafts faster than traditional whipstitching techniques by at least 77%.2
The implantable suture construct is made of a non-absorbable, flat spine suture composed of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) and a co-braided winding suture composed of either green (D&C Green #6) poly (ethylene terephthalate) (PET) and UHMWPE, or un-dyed PET and UHMWPE. The suture construct is supplied on a disposable, non-implantable, sterile delivery device made of polypropylene.
The SPEEDTRAP suture construct is indicated for use in soft tissue approximation in orthopedic procedures.
