Description

SuperCable® Polymer Iso-Elastic™ Sternotomy Closure System A Better Way, For Better Outcomes The “Iso-Elastic” property of the polymer SuperCable provides “dynamic compression” across the sternal halves to better accommodate the physiologic loads acting on the healing sternum. This Iso-elastic property also acts as a “shock absorber” on the sternum, helping to neutralize loads caused by coughing, sneezing and patient movement, thus reducing the chance of cut-through and loss of fixation. Additionally, the broader footprint of the double-strand cable can help to minimize cut-through into soft bone. The improved fixation offered by SuperCable provides the opportunity for more rapid and reliable bone healing, more rapid post-op recovery and reduced patient complications and readmissions. In vitro testing shows that the Iso-elastic SuperCable provides substantial sternotomy closure force after cyclic loading associated with forces expected during coughing and sneezing, whereas monofilament wires and braided metal cables both showed significant loss of fixation closure force (see test reports and test video below). This superior stability offered by SuperCable offers the potential to reduce post-operative pain and bleeding, along with other complications associated with median sternotomy. Additionally, the cable’s integrated titanium locking clasp allows for simple re-tensioning, and is of a low profile design that minimizes the potential for post-operative palpability. Finally, the polymer cable can be quickly cut with a scalpel for fast re-entry in emergent situations.
