V-Loc Device...The Secure Advantage


The V-Loc device provides greater strength and security compared to the Stratafix*
Spiral barbing technology. The unique dual angle cut and barbing pattern of the V-Loc
device creates the optimal barbing technology, which is backed by four years of clinical
experience and supported by level one evidence.1,2

Barb Design
V-Loc device utilizes a dual-angle-cut which creates a superior anchoring barb2 while optimizing
the strands integrity.

Dual-Angle Cut Single-Angle Cut


Produces barbs with strong anchoring force while Must select between:
preserving the integrity of the strands strength. High-cut angle that produces strong anchoring
barbs but compromises the strands strength, or
Low-cut angle that produces flimsy barbs
but preserves the strands strength

Barbing Pattern
V-Loc device utilizes an optimized barbing pattern that produces up to 2.5x the number of anchoring
barbs as the Stratafix* Spiral barbing technology.2
