Non-absorbable surgical suture ARES

Surgical suture includes needle with an attached length of thread. The needles are made from stainless steel. Non-absorbable sutures are made from a variety of nonbiodegradable materials, which are not digested by body enzymes or hydrolyzed in body tissue, specifically, there are the following types: Nylon monofilament, Silk and Polypropylene.

Features

1. Nylon monofilament

- Molecule: made from two types of polyamides are polyamide 6 or polyamide 6, 6.

- Advantages: Suture have smooth surface of the suture permit atraumatic passage and excellent sliding through the tissues, less tissue reaction and good wound closure.

- Indicates:

  • Used in closing external wound (skin suturing), joining soft tissues including eye surgery, microsurgery, neurosurgery, plastic surgery.
  • Due to tendency to lose strength after a long period of implantation in the body due to hydrolysis, nylon sutures are not recommended for surgery of tissue structures requiring a long suture retention period.

 

2. Polypropylene

- Molecule: made of non-absorbable synthetic monofilament surgical suture composed of an isotactic crystalline stereoisomer of Polypropylene.

- Advantages:

  • Elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in the tissue, followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous tissues.
  • It is not subject to any degradation or loss of tensile strength caused by tissue enzymes.

- Indicates:

  • Used in suturing and joining soft tissues including in cardiovascular surgery, eye surgery, neurosurgery...

 

3. Silk

- Molecule: the suture is composed of an organic protein called fibroin.

- Advantages: The high technology used in braided thread ensures high tensile compact strength, which provides longer time to support the tissue.

- Indicates:

  • Used in general surgery, plastic surgery, dentistry, ophthalmology, gastroenterology, epidermis, cardiology, obstetrics and gynecology, neurology and threading.
