Non Absorbable Sutures
DemeCAPRONE (Poliglecaprone 25) is a synthetic monofilament absorbable suture composed of Poly (glycolic-co-caprolactone) copolymer (PGCL) and is supplied violet and colorless. DemeCAPRONE (Poliglecaprone 25) is available in sizes 2 through 6/0.
DemeCAPRONE (POLIGLECAPRONE 25) synthetic absorbable sutures elicit a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues, which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue.
Progressive loss of tensile strength and eventual absorption of DemeCAPRONE (POLIGLECAPRONE 25) synthetic absorbable sutures occurs by means of hydrolysis. Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength followed by a loss of mass. Absorption is essentially complete in approximately 90 to 120 days.
DemeCAPRONE (POLIGLECAPRONE 25) synthetic absorbable suture is available in sizes 2 through 6/0.
DemeTech's fast absorbing Poliglecaprone 25 is made of a synthetic absorbable monofilament composed of glycolide and e-caprolactone copolymer (PGCL). DemeTech's Poliglecaprone 25 is available in either violet or colorless.
- Very high tensile strength initially
- Excellent handling properties and high pliability
- Very low incidence of infection and trauma
- Smooth tissue passage
- Reliable absorption
- High in vivo strength retention
• Do not re-sterilize. Contents are sterile unless packaging has been opened or damaged.
• Discard open, unused sutures.
• Store at room temperature.
• Avoid prolonged exposure to elevated temperatures.
• As with any foreign body, prolonged contact of this or any other suture with salt solutions, such as those found in the urinary or biliary tracts, may result in calculus formation.
• Users should be familiar with surgical procedures and techniques involving absorbable sutures before employing DemeCAPRONE (POLIGLECAPRONE 25) synthetic absorbable sutures for wound closure, as the risk of wound dehiscence may vary with the site of application and the suture material used.
• Acceptable surgical procedure must be followed with respect to drainage and closure of contaminated or infected wounds.
• The use of this suture may be inappropriate for patients with any conditions which, in the opinion of the surgeon, may cause or contribute to delayed wound healing. The use of supplemental non-absorbable sutures should be considered by the surgeon in the closure of sites subject to expansion, stretching or distention, or requiring additional support.
• Users should exercise caution when handling surgical needles to avoid
inadvertent needle stick injury. Discard used needles in ‘Sharps’ containers.
• Do not reuse. The reuse of single-use devices can cause cross contamination and affect the device safety, performance and effectiveness, exposing patients and staff to unnecessary risk. The design and material used are not compatible with conventional cleaning and sterilization procedures.
• Under some circumstances, notably orthopedic procedures, immobilization by external support may be employed at the discretion of the surgeon.
• Skin sutures which must remain in place longer than 7 days may cause localized irritation and should be snipped off or removed as indicated. Subcuticular sutures should be placed as deeply as possible to minimize the erythema and induration normally associated with absorption.
• When handling this or any other suture material, care should be taken to avoid damage from handling. Avoid crushing or crimping damage due to application of surgical instruments such as forceps or needle holders.
• DemeCAPRONE (POLIGLECAPRONE 25) suture knots must be properly placed to be secure. Adequate knot security requires the accepted surgical technique of flat and square ties with additional throws as warranted by surgical circumstance and the experience of the surgeon. The use of additional throws may be particularly appropriate when knotting monofilaments.
• To avoid damaging needle points and swage areas, the needle, grasp the needle in an area one-third (1/3) to one-half (1/2) of the distance from the swaged end to the point. Reshaping needles may cause them to lose strength and be less resistant to bending and breaking. Users should exercise caution when handling surgical needles to avoid inadvertent needle sticks. Discard used needles in “sharps” containers.
• Consideration should be taken in the use of absorbable sutures in tissue with poor blood supply as suture extrusion and delayed absorption may occur.
• Avoid prolonged exposure to elevated temperature.
• Broken needles may result in extended or additional surgeries or residual foreign bodies, and inadvertent needle sticks involving contaminated surgical needles can result in the transmission of bloodborne pathogens.
