Biotronix Healthcare Polypropylene sutures is a synthetic non-absorbable suture composed of long-chain polyolefin polymer known as polypropylene. Biotronix Healthcare’s polypropylene is available uncoated, because of its smooth surface, it enhances handling properties, smooth passage through tissue and knot security.

 

Unlike some absorbable sutures, Biotronix Polypropylene is not subject to degradation or known to lose tensile strength. Biotronix Polypropylene suture meets U.S.P. requirements as described in the U.S.P. Monograph for Non-absorbable Surgical Sutures.

• Smooth Passage through tissue

• Tensile strength retained indefinitely

• Minimal tissue reactivity

• Maximum flexibility

• Excellent knot security

• Not effected or weakened by tissue enzyme

Contraindications

The use of this suture is contraindicated on patients with known

sensitivities or allergies to its components.

 

Warnings

Do not use if package is open or damaged or if the expiration date has been exceeded. Discard open unused sutures. Do not resterilize; resterilization may alter the physical properties of this suture. Users should exercise caution when handling surgical needles to avoid inadvertent needle sticks. Discard used needles in a “sharps” container. Avoid storing product at 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 nonabsorbable sutures before employing Polypropylene for wound closure, as the risk of wound dehiscence may vary with the site of application and the suture material used. Acceptable surgical practice must be followed with respect to drainage and closure of infected or contaminated wounds.

 

Precautions

In handling this or any other surgical sutures 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. Adequate knot security requires the accepted surgical technique of flat, squared ties with additional throws as warranted by surgical circumstance and experience of the surgeon. The use of additional throws may be particularly appropriate when tying monofilaments.

 

Adverse reactions

Adverse effects associated with the use of this device include: wound dehiscence, calculus formation in urinary and biliary tracts when prolonged contact with salt solutions such as urine and bile occurs, infected wounds, minimal acute inflammatory tissue reaction, and transitory local irritation.
