ADVALENE Cardiovascular Suture

Polypropylene
Monofilament Synthetic Non-Absorbable Surgical Suture

Reliable performance for confidence in approximation of tissues in Cardiovascular surgeries

ADVALENE Cardiovascular Suture

ADVALENE Cardiovascular suture is a synthetic non-absorbable, sterile surgical suture composed of an isotactic crystalline stereoisomer of polypropylene, synthetic linear polyolen. The suture is dyed with Phthalocyanine Blue to enhance visibility in tissue.

The advanced extrusion process of the polypropylene molecule gives ADVALENE Cardiovascular suture.

  • Inert Monofilament Structure

  • Isotactic polymer-maximum strength

  • Minimal memory and reduced “pig-tailing”

The ADVALENE Edge1

  • Most inert monofilament structure makes ADVALENE Cardiovascular Suture
    an ideal choice for
    anastomosis.
  • ADVAPRIME needles are specially designed with an
    engineered tip to maintain shape and sharpness pass
    after pass for the most challenging calcified lesions &
    fibrotic blood vessels.
  • ADVALENE Cardiovascular Suture offers exceptional
    control and smooth passage through diseased tissues
    allowing knots to be repositioned and secure.
  • Predictable strength for permanent
    support
    22% higher knot pull tensile strength than
    U.S.P. limit ensures permanent wound support
  • The only Polypropylene with an advanced dispensing system

    – the confidence to
    suture with ease

    Enhanced robust packaging to ensure seal strength 8
    integrity and sterility assurance throughout shelf life

ADVALENE Cardiovascular Suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in ophthalmic surgery, peripheral nerve anastomosis, cardiovascular and neurological procedures.

ADVALENE Cardiovascular Suture is contraindicated in patients with known sensitivities or allergies to Polypropylene and PTFE (If suture with pledget is used).

ADVALENE Cardiovascular Suture is not absorbed nor is subjected to degradation or weakening by the action of tissue enzymes. Due to its relative biological inertness it is recommended for use where the least possible suture reaction is desired. As a monolament it has been successfully employed in surgical wound which subsequently become infected or contaminated where it can minimize later sinus formation and suture extrusion due to its lack of adherence to tissue, ADVALENE Cardiovascular Suture is effective as a pull-out suture.

ADVALENE Cardiovascular Suture complies with United States Pharmacopeia requirement for “Non-Absorbable surgical suture” and the European Pharmacopoeia for “Sterile Non-Absorbable Strands”. ADVALENE Cardiovascular Suture is also available with PTFE pledget which is used as a pad between the suture and tissue surface to increase the load-bearing area.
