Surgipro™ sutures are uncoated, inert, non-absorbable, sterile sutures composed of an isotactic, crystalline stereoisomer of polypropylene and contain polyethylene. These sutures are available dyed blue for visibility or undyed clear. Surgipro™ sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic and neurological surgery.
The advanced extrusion process of the polypropylene molecule gives the suture:
- Uniform diameter
- Maximum flexibility of the strand
- Excellent security with snug and flattened knots
- Minimal memory and reduced “pig-tailing”
- Consistent knotting strength
