What are Ticron sutures?

Ti-Cron™ polyester sutures are non-absorbable, sterile surgical sutures composed of polyethylene terephthalate. These braided sutures are available uncoated or coated uniformly with silicone to increase surface lubricity, enhancing handling characteristics, ease of passage through tissue, and knot run-down properties.

What suture is similar to Vicryl?

Vicryl is similar to Dexon in terms of mechanical and absorption characteristics. Polysorb is composed of a multifilament lactomer (glycolide/lactide).

What is Ethibond suture?

ETHIBOND EXCEL Suture is a nonabsorbable, braided, sterile, surgical suture composed of Poly (ethylene terephthalate). It is prepared from fibers of high molecular weight, long-chain, linear polyesters having recurrent aromatic rings as an integral component.

How strong is Ethibond?

Ethibond® #2 exhibited a mean rupture strength of 97.98 N and a mean displacement of 35.24 mm (Fig.

Is FiberWire suture absorbable?

FiberWire, Ethibond and TiCron are not bioabsorbable and the material properties do not change in vivo. Vicryl, however, is bioabsorbable and the in vitro data is representation of the initial suture strength.

Is Vicryl an absorbable suture?

VICRYL Suture is a synthetic absorbable suture coated with a lactide and glycolide copolymer plus calcium stearate. It is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including ophthalmic procedures, but not cardiovascular or neurological tissues.

Is Vicryl suture dissolvable?

How long do Ethibond sutures last?

When utilized to close a wound, the suture is neither absorbed by the tissue nor disintegrated by enzymes found in the tissue. Instead, the suture is slowly enclosed by fibrous connective tissue, where it will remain forever.

What kind of suture is ticron made out of?

TiCron polyester sutures are nonabsorbable, sterile, surgical sutures composed of polyethylene terephthalate. They are prepared from fibers of high molecular weight, long-chain, linear polyesters having recurrent aromatic rings as an integral component.

What kind of sutures do Medtronic use?

Product Portfolio. Ti-Cron™ polyester sutures are non-absorbable, sterile surgical sutures composed of polyethylene terephthalate. These braided sutures are available uncoated or coated uniformly with silicone to increase surface lubricity, enhancing handling characteristics, ease of passage through tissue, and knot run-down properties.

What’s the difference between ti Cron and surgidac sutures?

Yes, Ti-Cron™ and Surgidac™ sutures are both polyester sutures. However, Ti-Cron™ sutures are coated with Silicone while Surgidac™ sutures are not. It is this Silicone coating that gives Ti-Cron™ its supple feel.

What kind of sutures are used for nonabsorbable surgery?

Surgilon™ braided nylon sutures are nonabsorbable surgical sutures composed of the long-chain aliphatic polymers and Nylon 6.6. Surgilon™ sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation. Surgidac™ polyester sutures are nonabsorbable, sterile surgical sutures composed of polyethylene terephthalate.
