Polydek® Sutures

Available from Teleflex Medical OEM

A light coating of PTFE gives this tightly-braided, polyester suture handling and knotting characteristics similar to silk.

Characteristics: Polydek® exhibits easy handling, outstanding tensile strength, lubricity, and a reduced risk of wicking and tissue reactivity.

Material: Polyester (PET)

Coating: Light PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) coating reduces “dead space” in the braid and lowers the risk of wicking and tissue reactivity.

Indications: Polydek® surgical suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic, orthopedic, and neurological procedures.
