Biotronix Healthcare Nylon suture is a synthetic nonabsorbable suture composed of nylon 6 and 6.6. Biotronix Healthcare’s Nylon suture has minimal tissue reactivity and as with any nylon suture, although not absorbed, progressive hydrolysis of the suture in-vivo may result in gradual loss of tensile strength over time.\
General closure, skin and plastic surgery. Also can be used for ophthalmic and micro surgery.
Characteristics of Biotronix Healthcare Nylon sutures:
• Drill End Press Fit needles for maximum strength between thread and needles
• Smooth passage through tissue
• Superb Handling properties
• Minimal tissue reactivity
• Maximum flexibility
• Minimal memory
• Excellent knot security
Individually packaged 12 or 36 per box. Also available in reels.
Due to the gradual loss of tensile strength that may occur over prolonged periods in vivo, nylon surgical sutures should not be used where permanent retention of tensile strength is required.
Do not use if package is open or damaged or if the expiration date has been exceeded. Do not resterilize; resterilization may alter the physical characteristics of these sutures. Users should exercise caution when handling surgical needles to avoid inadvertent needle sticks. Discard used needles in a “sharps” container. Avoid storing product at elevated temperatures.
As with any foreign body, prolonged contact of this or any other suture with salt solutions, such as those found in the urinary or biliary tracts, may result in calculus formation. Users should be familiar with surgical procedures and techniques involving nonabsorbable suture before employing Nylon suture for wound closure, as the risk of wound dehiscence may vary with the site of application and the suture material used.
Acceptable surgical practice must be followed with respect to drainage and closure of infected or contaminated wounds. In handling this or any other surgical sutures material, care should be taken to avoid damage from handling. Avoid crushing or crimping damage due to application of surgical instruments such as forceps or needle holders. Adequate knot security requires the accepted surgical techniques of flat, squared ties with additional throws as warranted by surgical circumstance and experience of the surgeon. The use of additional throws may be particularly appropriate when tying monofilaments.
Adverse effects associated with the use of this device include wound dehiscence, gradual loss of tensile strength over time, calculi formation in urinary and biliary tracts when prolonged contact with salt solution such as urine and bile occurs, infected wounds, minimal acute inflammatory tissue reaction, and transitory local irritation.
