POLYESTER is produced by polycondensation of ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid
TYPES OF PACKAGING:
• precut lengths
USP 7-0 to 7 (0.5-9 metric)
green, white (no dye)
polyethylene terephthalate polyester fibre
The fibres are produced by the dry spinning method. The stretched, slightly twisted fibre bundles are then formed into
a suture by precision-braiding and tempering.
The fibre is hydrophobic, i.e. it does not absorb water.
POLYESTER sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic, orthopaedic and neurological procedures.
The material is coloured with a physiologically safe dye.
- high biocompatibility
- high tensile strength
- excellent passage through tissue
- high knot security
