Infinity-Lock™ 3 mm and Infinity-Lock™ 5mm Tapes

Open weave polyester tape for the approximation of soft tissue.

The Infinity-Lock™ 3 and Infinity-Lock 5 are non-absorbable, sterile, poly(ethylene terephthalate) flat suture tapes.

  • Strong: 3 mm tape strength 800 N / 5 mm tape strength 1000 N

  • Low stretch under cyclic tension

The Infinity-Lock™ 3 and Infinity-Lock 5 are prepared from fibers of high molecular weight, long-chain, linear polyesters having recurrent aromatic rings as an integral component. Infinity-lock tapes differ from USP suture by being in the form of woven tapes and in exceeding all USP sizes.

Infinity-Lock tapes come in two sizes, 3 mm and 5 mm. The tapes have an integral loop at one end which is used to facilitate a hitch through one end of a ruptured tendon.  The tapes have two tails. One tail end has an identifying mark and both taper into a cord to assist with passing through soft tissue.

Indications

The Infinity-Lock 3 and 5 mm tapes are intended to be used for soft tissue approximation, including:

  • Soft tissue approximation
  • Achilles tendon repair
  • Repair of Acute ruptures of the Achilles Tendon

How does it work?

The Infinity-Lock 3 mm and Infinity-Lock 5 mm tapes are used to approximate disrupted soft tissues.  The Infinity-Lock tape is passed through the disrupted tissue using the integrated loop to facilitate creating a hitch, securing one end of the tape to the tissue.  The ends of the Infinity-Lock tapes are tapered to cords facilitating the passage of the flattened tape through tissue.  The Infinity-Lock tape ends are passed through the adjoining tissue, with tension applied to bring the two tissue surfaces together.  The surgeon can use his preferred construct to achieve reduction. The tape ends are secured with the surgeon’s preferred technique.
