• It is manufactured from implantable high grade stainless steel of the highest quality (as per AISI 316 LVM (low carbon vacuum melt).
• Its inherently consistent tensile strength in combination with its good twisting & knotting properties guarantees a high degree of safety.
• More pliable wire conforms closely to the contours of the sternum facilitating good closure.
