Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE)




DemeFORCE Suture is indicated for use in approximation and/or ligation of soft tissues, including use of allograft tissue for orthopedic surgeries




The DemeFORCE UHMWPE Suture elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues, followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. DemeTECH DemeFORCE UHMWPE Suture is not absorbed, nor is any significant change in tensile strength retention known to occur in vivo.
