ADVABOND Polyester Green & White Braided Coated Non-Absorbable Surgical Suture

Ultimate security for confidence in approximation of tissue under stress

ADVABOND

ADVABOND suture is a sterile, coated, braided, synthetic, non-absorbable surgical suture composed of Polyethylene Terephthalate.

The advanced extrusion process of the Polyethylene Terephthalate molecule gives ADVABOND.

  • Excellent and consistent knotting strength

  • Excellent pliability & handling characteristics

  • Excellent and consistent knotting strength

  • OPTIMAL TENSILE STRENGTH
  • Knot pull tensile strength (KgF)2
  • 106% more knot pull tensile strength vs. U.S.P. limit ensures permanent wound support

Premium Needles for consistent Superior Performance
  • DURABLE COAT RETAINS SHARPNESS...PASS AFTER PASS
    Maintains needle sharpness over the duration of procedure, resulting into consistent penetration pass after pass thus less potential for tissue trauma.
  • RIBBED BODY FOR SUPERIOR CONTROL
    For superior grasping and stabilityof needle in needle forceps.
  • CHAMFERING MINIMUM SUTURE DETACHMENT
    Diminishes chances for suture fracturing at the swage, by rounding off the sharp edges of the barrel in the swage area of the needle.
  • ELECTROPOLISHING SMOOTH & BRIGHT
    Makes needle surface free from micro asperities, thus creates ultra sharp edges for lesser tissue drag.

Robust manufacturing process & superior Tyvek packaging

ADVABOND suture is a sterile, coated, braided, synthetic, non-absorbable surgical suture composed of Polyethylene Terephthalate. The suture is coated with Silicone which acts as a lubricant to mechanically improve the ease of passage through tissue and the overall handling qualities of the suture.

ADVABOND suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic and neurological procedures. The use of suture is contraindicated in patients with known sensitivities or allergies to Polyester.

ADVABOND suture elicits a minimal initial inflammatory reaction in tissues, which is followed by a gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. No significant change in the retention of tensile strength of the suture occurs during the lifetime of the implantation.

*Mass Absorption: Time in days required for suture to be totally absorbed in the body.
