Non-Absorbable Surgical Suture With Needle

  • Polyester Braided with Needle

    Polyester Braided with Needle

    Synthetic, non-absorbable, multifilament, braided suture.

    Green or white color.

    Polyester composite of terephthalate with or without cover.

    Because of its non-absorbable synthetic origin, it has a minimum tissue reactivity.

    Used in tissue coaption due to its characteristically high tensile strength.

    Color code: Orange label.

    Frequently used in Speciality Surgery including Cardiovascular and Opthtalmic because of its high resistance to repeated bending.

  • Polypropylene Monofilament with Needle

    Polypropylene Monofilament with Needle

    Synthetic, non-absorbable, monofilament suture.

    Blue color.

    Extruded in a filament with a computer controlled diameter.

    Tissue reaction is minimal.

    The polypropylene in vivo is extraordinarily stable, ideal for fulfilling its purpose as a permanent support, without compromising its tensile strength.

    Color code: Intense blue label.

    Frequently used to confront tissue in specialized areas. Cuticular and Cardiovascular procedures being among the most important.

  • Dispossible Non-absorbable Silk Braided with Needle

    Dispossible Non-absorbable Silk Braided with Needle

    Natural, non-absorbable, multifilament, braided suture.

    Black, white and white color.

    Obtained from the cocoon of the silk worm.

    Tissue reactivity may be moderate.

    Tension is maintained through time though it decreases until tissue encapsulation occurs.

    Color code: Blue label.

    Frequently used in tissue confrontation or ties except in urologic procedure.
