Silicone coated and braided polyester for permanent support and strength with Trubond

FEATURES OF TRUBOND

  • Braided polyester, coated with silicone for a smooth knot tie down
  • High tensile strength for reliability
  • Low tissue reactivity – undergoes no significant change in body
  • Excellent handling and long lasting
  • Trupass coated needle for easy penetration and extended smoothness

Trubond is the trusted suture for approximation in surgeries where strength and support are needed. As it is a braided, non-absorbable surgical suture, it gives a good knotting strength and secure knot placement.

APPLICATIONS

  • Used for permanent and removable fixtures
  • Prosthetic implantations
  • Force lifts
  • Cardiovascular surgery
  • Ideal for valve repair/ replacement

Since Trubond is neither absorbed nor subjected to degradation by tissue enzymes, these sutures are best suited for cardiovascular and ophthalmic surgery.
