Polydioxanone Suture (UNISYNTH PDS) – Tomorrow’s Suture Today

Monofilament Polydioxanone Suture or UNISYNTH PDS Suture is prepared from the polyester, poly (p-dioxanone).

Indications for Polydioxanone Suture (UNISYNTH PDS):

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

UNISYNTH PDS synthetic absorbable suture has been formulated to minimize the variability of these characteristics and to provide wound support through an extended healing period.

  1. Where Delayed Wound Support required.
  2. Surface as smooth as tissues; provides no tissue drag during suturing.
