Nylon Monofilament with Needle

Short Description:

Monofilament, synthetic, non-absorbable suture, color black, blue or undyed.

Obtained from extrusion of polyamide 6.0 and 6.6 with a uniform cylindrical diameter.

Tissue reaction is minimal.

Nylon is a non absorbable material that with time, is encapsulated by connective tissue.

Color code: Green label.

Normally used when confronting tissue in Neurological, Ophthalmic and Plastic Surgery.

About Needles

Needles are supplied in a variety of sizes, shapes and chord lengths. Surgeons should select the type of needle that, in their experience, is appropriate for the specific procedure and tissue.

The needle shapes are generally classified according to the degree of curvature of the body 5/8, 1/2,3/8 or 1/4 circle and straight-with taper, cutting, blunt.

In general, the same size of needle may be made from finer gauge wire for use in soft or delicate tissues and from heavier gauge wire for use in tough or fibrosed tissues (the surgeon's choice).

The Major Characteristics of Needles are

● They must be made from high quality stainless steel.
● They resist bending but are processed so that they will tend to bend before breaking.
● Taper points must be sharp and contoured for easy passage into tissues.
● Cutting points or edges must be sharp and free of burrs.
● On most needles, a super-Smooth finish is provided that permits the needle to penetrate and pass through with minimal resistance or drag.
● Ribbed needles—Longitudinal ribs are provided on many needles to increase the stability of the needle to the suture material must be secure so that the needle will not separate from the suture material under normal use.

General, Gynecology, Obsterrics, Ophthalmic, Urology and Microsurgery.

The surgeon can have confidence in procedures where a non absorbable, single-threaded suture of high tensile strength is recommended, provided that the surgeon knows the characteristics, benefits and limitations of this suture material and applies good surgical practice.
