DemeTECH Polypropylene sutures are inert, nonabsorbable, sterile surgical sutures composed of an isotactic crystalline stereoisomer of polypropylene, a synthetic linear polyolefin. The suture pigment used CU – Phtalocyanine Blue Dye to enhance visibility. All DemeTECH sutures meet the requirements established by U.S.P.
The DemeTECH Nonabsorbable Polypropylene Suture with and without needles is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in ophthalmic procedures. Product is intended for long term use over 30 days.
DemeTECH POLYPROPYLENE sutures elicit a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissue, which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. DemeTECH POLYPROPYLENE sutures are not absorbed, nor is any significant change in strength retention known to occur in vivo.
