Polydioxanone suture is ideal for use in general surgery, orthopedic surgery, pediatric cardiovascular surgery, gastro intestinal tract and sub cuticle surgery.


Characteristics of Biotronix Healthcare Polydioxanone suture:

• Drill End Press Fit needles for maximum strength between thread and needles

These sutures, being absorbable, are not to be used where prolonged (beyond six weeks) approximation of tissues under stress is required and are not to be used in conjunction with prosthetic devices, i.e., heart valves or synthetic grafts. Polydioxanone suture is not indicated in adult cardiovascular tissue, microsurgery and neural tissue.



The safety and effectiveness of Polydioxanone suture has not been established in neural tissues, adult cardiovascular tissue or for use in microsurgery. Under certain circumstances, notably orthopaedic procedures, immobilization by external support may be employed at the

Do not use if package is open or damaged or the expiration date has been exceeded. Discard open, unused suture. Do not resterilize; resterilization may alter the physical properties of this suture.



Polydioxanone suture knots must be properly placed to be secure. As with other synthetic sutures, knot security requires the standard surgical technique of flat and square ties with additional throws if indicated by surgical circumstances and the experience of the operator.


As with any suture, care should be taken to avoid damage when handling. Avoid the crushing or crimping application of surgical instruments, such as needle holders and forceps, to the strand except when grasping the free end of the suture during an instrument tie. Conjunctival and vaginal mucosal sutures remaining in place for extended periods may be associated with localized irritation and should be removed as indicated.


Subcuticular sutures should be placed as deeply as possible in order to minimize the erythema and induration normally associated with absorption. Acceptable surgical practice should be followed with respect to drainage and closure of infected wounds.
