Polydioxanone Suture (UNISYNTH PDS)

Monofilament Polydioxanone Suture (Tomorrow’s Suture Today)

Polydioxanone Suture (UNISYNTH PDS) is a synthetic absorbable suture that has been formulated to minimize the variability of these characteristics and to provide wound support through an extended healing period. Monofilament Suture is prepared from the polyester, poly (p-dioxanone).

Two important characteristics describe the in vivo performance of absorbable sutures first tensile strength retention and second the absorption rate (loss of mass).

  • Where Delayed Wound Support required.
  • The surface is smooth as tissues; provide no tissue drag during suturing.
  • Product Brochure

Polydioxanone Suture is best for:

  • Joint Muscle Approximation
  • Hard tissue approximation
  • Gluteus Maximus approximation
  • Monofilament Suture is the only hope of wound support during muscle movement.
