Suture Material

 

POLYDIOXANONE monofilament synthetic absorbable suture is prepared from the polyester, poly (p-dioxanone). The empirical molecular formula of the polymer is Polydioxanone polymer has been found to be non-antigenic and elicits only a slight tissue reaction during absorption. Demetech Polydioxanone sutures meet the requirement of the current edition of the United States Pharmacopeia.

 

INTENDED USE

 

POLYDIOXANONE monofilament synthetic absorbable sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation, including use in pediatric cardiovascular tissue where growth is expected to occur and ophthalmic surgery.

These sutures are particularly useful where the combination of an absorbable suture and extend wound support (up to six weeks) is desirable.

 

ACTIONS

 

Two important characteristics describe the in vivo performance of absorbable sutures: first, tensile strength retention, and second, the absorption rate (loss of mass). POLYDIOXANONE synthetic absorbable suture has been formulated to minimize the variability of these characteristics and to provide wound support through an extended healing period.

 

Data obtained from implantation studies show that the absorption of these sutures is minimal until about the 90th post-implantation day. Absorption is essentially complete within six to eight months.
