The Cable System is primarily a cerclage system that consists of two different-sized cerclage
cables with crimp in three different materials, and new instruments for applying the cable assembly. The cable assemblies are available for stainless steel and titanium implant indications. They are designed for use with the Cerclage Positioning Pins (for LC-DCP and LCP) and Cerclage Eyes (only available for screws with hex recess). The Cable System is fully compatible with all Synthes plates and screws.

|Ergonomically designed instruments||A primary goal of development was an ergonomic, compact instrument design which simplifies handling and decreases application errors.|
A variety of articles (implants and instruments)
make the cable system a very versatile system,
enabling it to be used for a wide range of applications (e.g. periprosthetic fractures, temporary reduction).
|Easy and safe surgical technique||
All implants and instruments were optimized
without compromise for the specific tasks of a
cable system. This simplifies the surgical technique (e.g. no contouring of plates necessary) and makes them easier and safer to use.
|Temporary fixation to support reduction||For the temporary fixation of a cerclage cable, the cable tensioner can be removed without losing tension thanks to the temporary Tension Holder.|
|Easy and safe crimping||A ratchet mechanism controls the amount of crimp and deformation. The crimper automatically releases when the cable is crimped (no overcrimping or undercrimping possible).|
