Truglyde Undyed 4-0, 68cm, 3/8 Circle Rc 19mm

Description

The Truglyde Undyed 4-0 suture is a premium, synthetic absorbable surgical suture crafted for a broad spectrum of soft tissue approximation and ligation procedures. Tailored to meet the exacting standards of contemporary surgical practice, this suture offers exceptional handling properties, dependable tensile strength, and predictable absorption rates.

Features

  1. Material Composition:

    • Polyglactin 910: This suture is constructed from Polyglactin 910, a copolymer consisting of glycolide and lactide. Renowned for its superior biocompatibility, Polyglactin 910 ensures minimal tissue reaction and consistent absorption.
    • Undyed: The suture is undyed (natural), making it suitable for situations where dye-free sutures are preferred, such as in specific tissue types or for patients with dye sensitivities.
  2. Size and Dimensions:

    • Gauge: 4-0, ideal for precise and fine tissue approximation.
    • Length: 68 cm, providing sufficient length for a variety of surgical applications without necessitating frequent suture changes.
    • Needle Specifications: It includes a 3/8 circle reverse cutting (Rc) needle measuring 19 mm. The reverse cutting needle design minimizes tissue trauma and ensures accurate wound closure.
  3. Absorption Profile:

    • Absorbable Nature: Truglyde Undyed sutures are absorbable, losing tensile strength gradually and being completely absorbed by the body via hydrolysis.
    • Absorption Timeline: Retains approximately 50% of its tensile strength at two weeks, with full absorption occurring between 56 to 70 days, thereby eliminating the need for suture removal and enhancing patient comfort.
  4. Handling and Knot Security:

    • Superior Handling: Exhibits smooth passage through tissue, minimal drag, and excellent knot-tying properties, facilitating ease of use and reducing operative time.
    • Secure Knotting: Ensures knots remain securely tied during the critical healing period, preventing wound dehiscence and promoting optimal healing.

Applications

Truglyde Undyed 4-0 sutures are highly versatile and suitable for an array of surgical procedures, including but not limited to:

  • General Surgery: Effective for soft tissue approximation and ligation.
  • Gynecological Procedures: Suitable for closing delicate tissues.
  • Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery: Ideal for fine tissue work where minimal scarring is desired.
  • Ophthalmic Surgery: Appropriate for delicate eye tissues due to its fine gauge.
  • Pediatric Surgery: Well-suited for pediatric patients given its absorbable nature and minimal tissue reaction.
  • Internal Tissues: Preferred in internal tissues where dye-free sutures are beneficial.

Packaging and Sterilization

  • Sterile Packaging: Each suture is individually packaged to ensure sterility until the point of use.
  • Convenient Access: Designed for easy opening, allowing for quick and efficient access during surgical procedures.
  • Shelf Life: Maintains integrity and sterility over an extended period when stored under recommended conditions.
