Polyester Braided with Needle

Short Description:

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.

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.

It is indicated in procedures where the use of a synthetic braided and non absorbable suture is recommended. These includes: cardiovascular surgery, opthalmogic surgery and general surgery.

The users can also reliably use it in those procedures where a non absorbable, single thread and synthetic suture of high tensile strength is recommended, provided that the user knows the characteristics, benefits and limitations of this suture material abd uses good surgical practice.
