Superior tensile strength and outstanding pliability for extended wound support with PD Synth

FEATURES OF PD SYNTH

  • Superior extended tensile strength
  • Allows smooth passage through tissue with minimal trauma
  • Provides wound support for longer periods
  • Good handling properties and excellent knot security
  • Slow and predictable absorption
  • Induces minimal inflammation
  • Trupass coated needle for easy penetration and extended smoothness

PD Synth is suitable for cases where extended wound support and strength are required for rectus sheath closure or fascia closure. Absorption of this suture is through simple hydrolysis. It retains about 70% of the initial tensile strength after 2 weeks, 50% after 4 weeks, 25% after 6 weeks and is absorbed in the tissue within 180 days from the time of implantation.

APPLICATIONS

  • For rectus sheath closure
  • Fascia closure and gastrointestinal tract
  • Pediatric cardiovascular surgery
  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Geriatric surgeries
  • General surgery

PD Synth can also be used on patients suffering from chronic ailments like cancer or diabetes where the healing period may be long.
