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

Description

The Truglyde Violet 4-0 suture is a high-quality, synthetic absorbable surgical suture designed for a wide range of soft tissue approximation and ligation procedures. Engineered to meet the rigorous demands of modern surgery, this suture combines exceptional handling characteristics with reliable tensile strength and predictable absorption properties.

Features

  1. Material Composition:

    • Polyglactin 910: The Truglyde suture is made from Polyglactin 910, a copolymer of glycolide and lactide. This material is known for its excellent biocompatibility and absorption profile.
    • Violet Coloration: The suture is dyed violet to enhance visibility during surgery, making it easier for the surgeon to identify and manipulate.
  2. Size and Dimensions:

    • Gauge: 4-0, suitable for delicate and finer tissue approximation.
    • Length: 68 cm, providing ample length for various surgical procedures without requiring frequent sutures changes.
    • Needle Specifications: Equipped with a 3/8 circle reverse cutting (Rc) needle measuring 19 mm in length. The reverse cutting needle is designed to reduce tissue cut-through and ensure precise wound closure.
  3. Absorption Profile:

    • Absorbable Nature: As an absorbable suture, Truglyde Violet gradually loses tensile strength and is 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, reducing the need for suture removal and minimizing patient discomfort.
  4. Handling and Knot Security:

    • Excellent Handling: The suture exhibits smooth tissue passage, minimal drag, and superior knot-tying characteristics, ensuring ease of use and reducing surgical time.
    • Reliable Knot Security: Ensures that knots remain secure during the critical healing period, preventing wound dehiscence and promoting optimal healing.

Applications

Truglyde Violet 4-0 sutures are versatile and can be used in a variety of surgical procedures, including but not limited to:

  • General Surgery: 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: Due to its fine gauge, it is suitable for delicate eye tissues.
  • Pediatric Surgery: Appropriate for use in pediatric patients due to its absorbable nature and minimal tissue reaction.

Packaging and Sterilization

  • Sterile Packaging: Each suture is individually packaged to maintain sterility until use.
  • Ease of Access: The packaging is designed for easy opening, ensuring quick and efficient access during surgical procedures.
  • Shelf Life: The suture maintains its integrity and sterility for an extended period when stored under recommended conditions.
