ADVACRYL PLUS Polyglactin - 910 Antibacterial with Triclosan Braided Coated Absorbable Surgical Suture

Consistent performance for confidence in a variety of soft tissue approximation minimizing Surgical Site Infections (SSI)

ADVACRYL PLUS

ADVACRYL PLUS suture is a braided, Triclosan coated antibacterial absorbable surgical suture assures consistent performance for condence in a variety of soft tissue approximation by minimizing Surgical Site Infections (SSI).

  • Excellent strength over the critical wound healing period

  • Tighter braided construction

  • Excellent handling

  • Excellent knot security

  • Triclosan – coated sutures are effective in
    reducing the risk of post operative SSI

  • Provides excellent support for a range of critical
    wound healing periods to secure closure in a
    variety of tissues, procedures and patients7

  • 48% more knot pull tensile strength vs U.S.P. limit
    ensures excellent support throughout the critical
    wound healing period

  • Knot pull tensile strength (KgF)

SSI is the most common infection among hospital acquired infections 1

Majority of patients presented for surgery are either clean-contaminated or contaminated 2

Contamination further multiplies the risk of surgical site infections 2

prophylaxis “Considers the use of Triclosan
coated sutures for the prevention of SSI”

World Health Organization (WHO)

Section 4.22 – Antimicrobial coated sutures
recommends the use of Triclosan – coated
sutures for the purpose of reducing the risk
of SSI, independent of the type of surgery.

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 primary aluminum packaging

ADVACRYL PLUS Antibacterial Suture is a braided, synthetic absorbable sterile surgical suture composed of a copolymer made from 90% glycolide and 10% L-lactide, coated with a mixture composed of Poly (glycolide-co-lactide) (Glacomer 37) and calcium stearate. suture is ADVACRYL PLUS available in both dyed and undyed form.

ADVACRYL PLUS Antibacterial Suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, except for ophthalmic, cardiovascular and neurological tissues

ADVACRYL PLUS Antibacterial Suture being an absorbable suture, should not be used where extended approximation of tissue under stress is required. The use of this suture is also contraindicated in patients with known sensitivities or allergies to Polyglactin 910.

The progressive loss of tensile strength and eventual absorption of ADVACRYL PLUS Antibacterial Suture occurs by means of hydrolysis where the copolymer degrades to glycolic and lactic acids which are subsequently absorbed and metabolized in the body. Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength followed by a loss of mass.
