Use of non-absorbable suture material places high demands on the material's lasting reliability and its tolerance by the body. All raw materials used in sutures from Resorba meet these demands.
SUPRAMID is a pseudomonofilament suture made from polyamide 6 and is manufactured by polycondensation of alpha-aminocaproic acid. SUPRAMID consists of a braided yarn core covered by a compressed sheath. This unique yarn structure gives SUPRAMID its positive properties of both a monofilament and multifilament suture. It is recognised by its elastic yarn core and smooth exterior. The yarn’s structure prevents capillarity with a maximum 10% fluid absorption.
SUPOLENE is a synthetic, non-absorbable thread that is manufactured by polycondensation of ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid. SUPOLENE is a braided suture that is silicon/teflon-treated to minimise capillarity and sawing effects as it passes through tissue. The yarn is hydrophobic which means that is does not absorb fluid.
- No sawing effect
- Minimal tissue reactivity
- Low capillarity
- Very even and smooth surface
- Resistant against endogenous enzymes
RESOLON is a monofilament nylon suture made of polyamide 6. RESOLON is recognised by its elasticity and smooth surface. The yarn’s structure prevents capillarity with maximum 10% fluid absorption.
MOPYLEN is a synthetic, non-absorbable yarn that is manufactured by polycondensation of ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid. The suture is hydrophobic which means that it absorbs almost no water; it is also chemically inert. This, in combination with its non-thrombogenic properties, makes MOPYLEN particularly suitable for permanent insertion. MOPYLEN remains unchanged in tissue, even in inflamed and infected wound areas.
- Permanent high tensile strength
- Easy to knot
- Excellent passage through tissue
SILKE is a multifilament, braided suture made of natural fibres from the silk worm. SILKE has excellent knotting properties and low tissue friction.
