Simplicity and security

Our Endo Stitch™ device together with our VLoc™ wound closure device enables simple and secure wound closure.  

Simplicity – no knots needed

Our revolutionary V-Loc™ device uses unidirectional barbs to distribute tension across the wound, holding the edges together without knots.

Security – greater strength

Using the Endo Stitch™ device with our V-Loc™ device will provide you with greater wound closure strength compared with the Stratafix™* Spiral.7,8†
