Polydioxanone Suture (Tomorrow’s Suture Today)

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

In-house needle manufacturing provides you the better needles with optimum sharpness which finally delivers smooth riding on tissues during suturing.

  • Available Sizes – 2 to 4-0

Indications of Polydioxanone Suture

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.

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

Best used in:

  • Joint muscles approximation
  • Hard tissue approximation
  • Gluteus Maximus approximation
  • UNISYNTH PDS – Only hope of wound support during muscle movement
