PROFIMED-PTFE is a sterile non absorbable monofilament surgical suture made from polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) polymer. PROFIMED-PTFE surgical sutures are used for soft tissue approximation and /or ligation, even in cardio-vascular and dental procedures, but is not indicated for use in ophthalmic surgery, microsurgery and peripheral neural tissue .The use of PROFIMED-PTFE suture in some patients can cause initial skin irritation followed by a minimal inflammatory reaction at the wound site. As every foreign body it can enhance an existing infection

Surgical Steel

Published in Medipac Written by

Surgical Steel sutures are for use in abdominal wound closure, hernia repair, sternal closure and orthopaedic procedures including cerclage and tendon repair. The implantation of the Surgical Steel suture in tissues results to an initial inflammatory reaction, followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by connective tissues and is not absorbed.

Polyester

Published in Medipac Written by

Polyester sterile surgical sutures are used for soft tissue approximation and ligation, even in ophthalmic, cardiovascular and neurological procedures. The implantation of the POLYESTER suture in tissues results to an initial inflammatory reaction, followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by connective tissues. POLYESTER sutures are not absorbed, nor is any significant change in tensile strength known to occur in vivo.

Silk

Published in Medipac Written by

Braided non absorbable Silk suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation but not for use in cardiovascular tissues and tissues of the central nervous system. The implantation of the SILK suture in tissues results to an initial inflammatory reaction, followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by connective tissues. SILK sutures are not absorbed, but the protein fibers are progressively degraded with gradual loss of their tensile strength.

Polyamid

Published in Medipac Written by

Monofilament non absorbable Polyamid suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation but not for use in cardiovascular tissues and tissues of the central nervous system. POLYAMID suture is not adherent to the tissues and it can be removed easily and painlessly. Therefore it can be used as a pull out suture. The suture is usually removed in a period of 30 days.

Propylen

Published in Medipac Written by

PROPYLEN surgical sutures are used for soft tissue approximation and ligation, even in ophthalmic, cardiovascular and neurological procedures. It is a tissue compatible material. Implantation of the suture elicits a minimal inflammatory reaction followed by gradual encapsulation by fibrous connective tissue. PROPYLEN is not absorbed nor degraded and it its tensile strength is not influenced from the action of proteolytic enzymes. As it is relatively biologically inert its use is recommended in cases where minimal tissue reaction is desired. It is especially recommended for use in infected wounds or in wounds with high risk of later infection. PROPYLEN suture is not adherent to the tissues and it can be removed easily and painlessly. Therefore it can be used as a pull out suture. The suture is usually removed in a period of 30 days.

NEOSORB PLUS Synthetic Absorbable Surgical Suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, but not for use in ophthalmic, cardiovascular and neurological procedures. NEOSORB PLUS Synthetic Absorbable Surgical Suture elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues, which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. Progressive loss of tensile strength and eventual absorption of NEOSORB PLUS Synthetic Absorbable Sutures occurs hydrolysis, where the polymer degrades to glycolic and lactic acids which are subsequently absorbed and metabolized in the body. Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength without appreciable loss of mass. NEOSORB PLUS retains approximately 50% of the average E.P. tensile strength requirement at the end of the 3nd post implantation week. The absorption of the suture is essentially complete between 56-70 days. Evaluation of antimicrobial efficacy showed that NEOSORB PLUS suture has a zone of inhibition that is effective against the pathogens that most often cause surgical site infection – Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis.

NEOSORB RAPID Synthetic Absorbable Surgical Suture is indicated only for use in soft tissue approximation of the skin and mucosa, plastic surgery, where only short-term wound support is required. It is not indicated for use in ligation, ophthalmic, cardiovascular, or neurological procedures. NEOSORB RAPID Synthetic Absorbable Surgical Suture elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues, which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. Progressive loss of tensile strength and eventual absorption of NEOSORB RAPID Synthetic Absorbable Sutures occurs hydrolysis, where the polymer degrades to glycolic and lactic acids which are subsequently absorbed and metabolized in the body. NEOSORB RAPID retains approximately 50% of the original tensile strength at 5 days post implantation. All of the original tensile strength is lost by approximately 10 to 14 days. Absorption is essentially complete by 42 days.

Neosorb (PGLA)

NEOSORB PGLA Synthetic Absorbable Surgical Suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in ophthalmic procedures, but not for use in cardiovascular and neurological procedures. NEOSORB PGLA Synthetic Absorbable Surgical Suture elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues, which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. Progressive loss of tensile strength and eventual absorption of NEOSORB PGLA Synthetic Absorbable Sutures occurs hydrolysis, where the polymer degrades to glycolic and lactic acids which are subsequently absorbed and metabolized in the body. Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength without appreciable loss of mass. NEOSORB PGLA retains approximately 50% of the average E.P. tensile strength requirement at the end of the 3nd post implantation week. The absorption of the suture is essentially complete between 56-70 days.

Pga

PGA-Polyglycolic Acid Synthetic Absorbable Surgical Suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in ophthalmic procedures, but not for use in cardiovascular and neurological procedures. PGA suture elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues, which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. Progressive loss of tensile strength and eventual absorption of Polyglycolic Acid Synthetic Absorbable Sutures occurs hydrolysis, where the polymer degrades to glycolic acid which is subsequently absorbed and metabolized by the body. Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength without appreciable loss of mass. Polyglycolic Acid Synthetic Absorbable Suture PGA retains approximately 75% of the average E.P. tensile strength requirement at the end of the 2nd post implantation week, and more than 35% at the end of the 3rd week. The absorption of the suture is essentially complete between 50 and 90 days.
