Polydioxanone suture, length 75 cm, tapercut needle, 1/2 circle with length 20 mm, USP 2/0, 12 pieces
Product code 1384-TT1/2-20-2/0
DescriptionCharacteristics: • USP 2/0 • length: 75 cm • composition: polydioxanone • for veterinary use • Needle Triangular Cutter (Tapercut) 1/2, circle length 20 mm The set contains 12 pieces. • The sutures are absorbable, sterile, made of synthetic threads, purple in color, made of polyester poly (p-dioxanone). The suture thread is available in a wide range of length-diameter combinations, attached to needles of various sizes and types, made of high quality medical stainless steel. The synthetic absorbable suture can cause a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in the tissues, which is followed by the gradual encapsulation of the suture by the fibrous connective tissue. The progressive loss of tensile strength and eventual absorption of the thread is done through hydrolysis, where the polymer breaks down into carbon dioxide and water, which are then absorbed and metabolized by the body. Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength, without considerable loss of mass. Suture retention is 65-70% of the initial tensile strength after 4 weeks and 50-60% after 6 weeks. Suture absorption is complete after a period between 180 and 220 days.
