Polypropylene Monofilament with Needle

Short Description:

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.

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.

Cardiovascular surgery, plastic reconstructive, cuticular surgery, ginecology and obstetretics.

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.
