Fast absorbing synthetic suture for soft tissue approximation with Truglyde

FEATURES OF TRUGLYDE

  • Outstanding tensile strength
  • Excellent handling properties
  • Good knot security and easy knot placement
  • Lubricated coating decreases the coefficient of friction, allowing easy tissue passage
  • Elicits less inflammatory response since it is not a naturally occurring organic substance
  • Trupass coated needle facilitates easy penetration and extended smoothness

Truglyde provides wound support of 28-30 days and is ideal for all soft approximation. It provides better predictability in terms of support and absorption compared to conventional catgut sutures.

APPLICATIONS

  • For soft tissue approximation during general, gynecological and orthopedic surgeries

Truglyde retains its original tensile strength until the wound has achieved adequate stability, which makes it an ideal synthetic absorbable suture.
