Truglyde Violet 7-0, 45cm, 3/8 Circle Spatula 6.5mm

Description

The Truglyde Violet 7-0 suture is a specialized synthetic absorbable surgical suture designed for delicate and precise surgical procedures. Engineered with exceptional handling properties, reliable tensile strength, and predictable absorption rates, this suture is ideal for microsurgical applications where fine tissue approximation is required.

Features

  1. Material Composition:

    • Polyglactin 910: Crafted from Polyglactin 910, a copolymer of glycolide and lactide, known for its exceptional biocompatibility. This ensures minimal tissue reaction and consistent absorption.
    • Violet Coloration: The suture is dyed violet, enhancing visibility during surgery, enabling easier identification and manipulation by the surgeon.
  2. Size and Dimensions:

    • Gauge: 7-0, extremely fine for delicate tissue approximation, providing minimal tissue trauma and precise wound closure.
    • Length: 45 cm, offering sufficient length for microsurgical applications without excess material.
    • Needle Specifications: Equipped with a 3/8 circle spatula needle measuring 6.5 mm. The spatula needle design allows for precise tissue penetration and manipulation, particularly in microsurgical procedures.
  3. Absorption Profile:

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

    • Superior Handling: 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 Violet 7-0 sutures are specifically designed for microsurgical procedures and are suitable for a range of delicate surgical applications, including but not limited to:

  • Ophthalmic Surgery: Ideal for fine tissue work in ocular procedures such as cataract surgery, corneal transplants, and retinal surgery.
  • Neurosurgery: Suitable for delicate nerve repair and microvascular anastomoses.
  • Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery: Perfect for facial nerve repair, microsurgical flap procedures, and delicate cosmetic procedures.
  • Vascular Surgery: Used for microvascular anastomoses in procedures such as replantation surgery and free tissue transfer.
  • Dermatologic Surgery: Effective for precise wound closure in Mohs surgery and other dermatologic procedures requiring fine sutures.

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.
