Polyester Sutures

box-NL DemeTech's Polyester (braided without covering) suture is a non-absorbable, sterile, surgical suture composed of Poly (ethylene terephthalate). DemeTech's Polyester (braided without covering) suture elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues, followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture. High quality materials, combined with precise braiding mechanisms, nearly eliminate the occurrence of post-operative suture fragments in the tissue. Polyester (braided without covering) Suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in ophthalmic procedures. Product is intended for long term use over 30 days. This product is not intended to be used on the heart or with the central circulatory and central nervous systems.

    Characteristics of DemeTech's Polyester (braided without covering) Sutures:

    As Polyester (braided without covering) is not coated, it allows for extreme ease of use and secure knot tying.

    It provides for minimal breakage, and thus eliminates the need to remove irritating suture fragments postoperatively.

    No significant change in tensile strength known to occur in vivo

    As Polyester (braided without covering) is uncoated, it maintains a higher coefficient of friction as it passes through the tissue.
