Duracare

Manufactured especially for Ostralos, these exceptional sutures are highly popular with top New Zealand surgeons.

Duracare polypropylene sutures are a non-absorbable, sterile surgical suture. As a monofilament suture, it does not support bacterial growth. It is not affected by blood, or weakened by tissue enzymes. It offers prolonged tensile strength even in infected areas, as it is not degraded over time. This suture is knowwn for low tissue drag, easy handling, and good strength.
