PVDF is monofilament non-absorbable suture made of polyvunyldinefluoride. The kinds of tissues that PVDF can be used for are the same as for polypropylene. The only difference is that PVDF is smoother. Thanks to its homogeneous and smooth surface it penetrates tissue surface easily. It has good tensile strength. Atraumatic combinations of PVDF are available in a range of gauge sizes and lengths, non-needled or attached to different types and sizes of single and double stainless steel needles. Grey colour is used on single and collective packaging.
INDICATIONS AND USE
Combination of PVDF threads and needles are used according to kind and size of the wound, surgical procedures and techniques, experience of surgeon and condition of the patient. PVDF are intended for use in general all tissue, skin closure, cardiovascular, urology, plastic surgery. Because of physiological propriety ( thread is totally indifferent) high biostability and lack of getting stale in tissue, thread guarantee long durability of the suture.
