RTI Surgical™ Sternal Cable System

Summary

The RTI Surgical™ Sternal Cable System is an improved alternative over traditional monofilament sternal wire used to close median sternotomies. This system consists of multi-strand stainless steel and titanium cable which is tensioned and secured using RTI’s patented Tensioner/Crimper instrument. The cable is smooth and flexible, making insertion and removal easy and intuitive. The tensioner assures adequate tension is applied, while the tension scale ensures each cable is tensioned to the same degree before crimping. Multiple “figure 8” constructs work as one unit to provide optimal stabilization.

Design Features

  • Diameter: 1.1 mm SS, 1.3 mm Ti
    Crimps to secure tension and lock cables in position 
    Low profile crimp reduces tissue irritation 
    Available in implantable Ti and SS
    Cable’s unique multi-strand design eliminates the risk of kinking

Strong

The RTI Sternal Cable is approximately 10X stronger in fatigue strength than the standard sternal wire.* (Reference- *Technical data on file at RTI Surgical.)

Consistent

The tensioning system permits adjustment of the cable intra-operatively to a known value, allowing for consistency in pressure along the midline.

Flexible

The sternal cable uniformly hugs the bone in a “figure 8” construct, thus decreasing the possibility of loosening, micro-motion, potential postoperative implant failure and related patient risk.
