Supolene sutures green 5/0 USP 45cm
SUPOLENE, like polyester, is manufactured by polycondensation of ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid.
The fibres are produced by the dry spinning method. The suture is then precisionbraided,dyed, tempered and the surfacespecially refined by coating the suture.
This surface treatment reduces to a minimum capillarity and the sawing action during passage through the tissue and the knot rundown.
Since SUPOLENE is hydrophobic, i.e. it does not absorb water, is non-ageing and therefore suitable for cardiovascular surgery for securing implants and grafts.
The material is coloured with a physiologically safe dye.
