POLYDIOXANONE ABSORBABLE SURGICAL SUTURES AM-612 (PDS or PDO)

POLYDIOXANONE ABSORBABLE SURGICAL SUTURES AM-612 (PDS or PDO)

Polydioxanone suture is a synthetic, monofilament absorbable suture.
Polydioxanone sutures are available from U.S.P. size 2 to size 6-0. Sutures are available in violet colour.
Polydioxanone sutures are composed of polymers made from 100% homopolymer of polydioxanone.
Polydioxanone sutures absorb by simple hydrolytic mechanism and absorption is predictable.
Polydioxanone sutures retain about 70% of the initial tensile strength after 2 weeks, 50% of the initial tensile strength after 4 weeks and 25% after 6 weeks of implantation and the suture is essentially absorbed within 180 days.

Description

Polydioxanone suture provides wound support for longer period as compared to other synthetic absorbable sutures. Polydioxanone suture also offers far superior tensile strength. Polydioxanone suture is made from polymerizing para dioxanone monomer. PDS sutures provide wound support for longer periods up to 50 days and offers far superior tensile strength and outstanding pliability. Its monofilament structure provides good handling properties and excellent knot security. Absorption of suture is by simple hydrolysis within 180 days from implantation day. Absorption of polydioxanone suture is reliable and predictable.
