Loop Suture

Pre-knotted Loop Suture For Laparoscopic Procedure

LOOP Suture is a sterile absorbable surgical suture composed of purified connective tissue (collagen) derived from the submucosal layer of sheep intestine. LOOP suture is a material which has been tanned by treatment with chromium salts in the trivalent form and with oxidized pyrogallol, to prolong its resistance to absorption and to colour the material dark brown.

LOOP suture is formed in a ligature loop with a knot called as UNILOOP Ligature. UNILOOP complies with the requirements of the European Pharmacopeia Monograph for ā€œSterile Catgutā€ and the United States Pharmacopeia for ā€œAbsorbable Surgical Sutureā€.

APPLICATION:

UNILOOP consists of a long ligature in a PP tube that is narrow at one end and scored at the other, where it is attached. The suture is formed in a ligature loop with a knot. Once the ligature is in place, the scored end is simply snapped and pulled upward to tighten the loop and secure the knot.

Indication & Characteristics for Loop Suture:

  • UNILOOP Ligature facilitates the ligation of pedicles in laparoscopic procedures.
  • UNILOOP sutures are intended for use in appendectomy, cholecystectomy and other surgeries.
  • High tensile strength reduces breakage
  • Excellent knot tying
  • Highest level of Collagen guarantees predictable absorption
  • Specially designed for ease of handling
  • Offers speedy ligation procedure

Loop Suture evokes a minimal inflammatory reaction in tissues due to foreign body response. UNILOOP gradually loses tensile strength and is finally absorbed by the proteolytic enzymatic digestive process. Significant tensile strength is retained until initial 10 to 14 days and some measurable strength is retained up to 21 days.

Complete absorption of UNILOOP suture takes place between 90 and 100 days. Due to the inherent variability of natural material, tensile strength loss and absorption rate varies. Infection and Tissue Sites may affect the tensile strength loss and rate of absorption.

UNILOOP is absorbed more rapidly in case of infected tissue than in non-infected tissue and where increased levels of proteolytic enzymes are present, as in the secretions from the stomach, cervix and vagina

Recommended storage conditions: Below 25 Ā°C, away from moisture and direct heat. Do not use after the expiry date.

The Uniloop is a simple endosuturing device designed to ligate tissue with a looped slipknot. It is currently available in a variety of suture sizes and materials. The loop can be precisely placed around tissue pedicles and blood vessels. Ligation and hemostasis can be accomplished as the loop will constrict around the tissue and secure in place with the aid of PP knot-pusher.

Advantages of this technique are the relative ease of use, precision and excellent hemostasis. One should always consider using an Uniloop when attempting to control bleeding. In contrast to electrocautery or metal clips, an Uniloop, when applied causes no lateral thermal injury or trauma to surrounding tissue.

  • UNILOOP sutures have a shelf life of 5 Years.
  • UNILOOP sutures are sterilized by gamma irradiation.

The UNILOOP consists of ligature in a PP tube that is narrow at one end and scored at the other, where it is attached. The suture is formed in a ligature loop with a knot. Once the ligature is in place, the scored end is simply snapped and pulled upward to tighten the loop and secure the knot. Hence, UNILOOP can be used in an elegantly simple and effective way by the surgeons.

UNILOOP as a standard device for laparoscopic procedures leads to a marginal reduction in intraoperative costs without increasing negative outcomes.
