POLYBOND® Braided Polyester Non-Absorbable Suture
Polybond® is a braided polyester non-absorbable, sterile surgical suture, composed of polyethylene terepthalate. It is prepared from fibers of high molecular weight, long-chain, linear polyesters having recurrent aromatic rings as an integral component. The braided suture is coated uniformly with silicone to increase surface lubricity, thereby enhancing handling characteristics, ease of passage through tissue, and knot run-down properties.
• High tensile strength, both linear and knotted
• Maximum security in approximation of tissue under stress conditions
• Maximum security with prosthetic implants
• Smooth flow through tissue while maintaining optimal knot security
Polybond® suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic, and neurological procedures.
Polyester suture is nonabsorbable; no significant change in tensile strength retention is known to occur in vivo.
