PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the abrasion resistance of different types of non-absorbable braided sutures under varying in vitro conditions of cyclic loading. TYPE OF STUDY Biomechanical study. METHODS Two types of nonabsorbable braided sutures were used in this study, No. 2 Ethibond and No. 2 Fiberwire, combined with 5 different anchors: 5.0-mm Corkscrew anchor, 5.0-mm BioCorkscrew anchor, 3.0-mm BioFastak anchor, Panalok RC anchor, and 3.5-mm Panalok anchor.
