Polyester Sutures

box-PB DemeTech's Polyester suture is a non-absorbable, sterile, surgical suture composed of Poly (ethylene terephthalate). DemeTech uniformly coats its Polyester sutures, providing for an improvement in the physical properties of the suture. High quality materials, combined with precise braiding mechanisms, nearly eliminate the occurrence of post-operative suture fragments in the tissue. Polyester Suture with and without needles 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 Sutures:

    Coated Polyester allows for an easier passage of the braided strands through the tissue allowing for smoother usage and less irritation.

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

    Provides excellent pliability (malleable).

    Excellent handling qualities & smooth tie-down properties.

    No significant change in tensile strength known to occur in vivo.

    Dyed for good visibility in the surgical arena.
