Truglyde Undyed 4-0, 68cm, 3/8 Circle Rc 24mm

Description

The Truglyde Undyed 4-0 suture is a top-tier, synthetic absorbable surgical suture specifically designed for a diverse range of soft tissue approximation and ligation procedures. Created to meet the high standards of modern surgical requirements, this suture offers exceptional handling properties, reliable tensile strength, and consistent absorption rates.

Features

  1. Material Composition:

    • Polyglactin 910: This suture is made from Polyglactin 910, a copolymer of glycolide and lactide. This material is known for its superior biocompatibility, ensuring minimal tissue reaction and predictable absorption.
    • Undyed: The suture is undyed (natural), making it ideal for situations where dye-free sutures are required, such as in certain tissue types or for patients with dye sensitivities.
  2. Size and Dimensions:

    • Gauge: 4-0, perfect for precise and fine tissue approximation.
    • Length: 68 cm, offering sufficient length for various surgical procedures without necessitating frequent suture changes.
    • Needle Specifications: Equipped with a 3/8 circle reverse cutting (Rc) needle measuring 24 mm. The reverse cutting needle is designed to reduce tissue cut-through and ensure accurate wound closure.
  3. Absorption Profile:

    • Absorbable Nature: Truglyde Undyed sutures are absorbable, gradually losing tensile strength and being completely absorbed by the body through hydrolysis.
    • Absorption Timeline: The suture retains approximately 50% of its tensile strength at two weeks and is fully absorbed by 56-70 days, thus eliminating the need for suture removal and enhancing patient comfort.
  4. Handling and Knot Security:

    • Superior Handling: The suture exhibits smooth tissue passage, minimal drag, and excellent knot-tying properties, facilitating ease of use and reducing surgical 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 a wide range 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.
