PVDF (Polyvinyldinefluoride)  Sutures

PVDF (Polyvinyldinefluoride) (PV) is blue or black non-resorbent monofile thread made out of Polyvinyldinefluoride.
The tissue areas where PVDF is used are similar to those polypropylene. PVDF, however, provides a better and tighter knotting process with fewer knots. As with polypropylene, PVDF may also be used for implanting.
Micro-needle thread combinations with PVDF carry dark grey framed labels.

  • PVDF Suture is unique among synthetic nonabsorbable monofilament sutures in that it is made of Polyvinylidene fluoride homopolymer  polymers

PVDF Suture is manufactured using a patented polymerization process with a unique extrusion process to produce an optimal balance of physical and handling characteristics throughout the range of suture sizes.

The resulting strength ensures PVDF Suture will remain secure in critical surgical procedures where life-long stability is required, particularly in delicate applications where fine suture sizes are used.

As with other synthetic sutures, knot security requires the standard technique of flat and square
ties with additional throws if indicated by surgical circumstances and experience of the surgeon.

Caution: Care should be taken to avoid damaging the surface of the material with surgical
instruments.

These sutures comply with the requirements of U.S. Pharmacopoeia (U.S.P.) and The European Pharmacopoeia (PhEur) except for a slight oversize in gauge size Metric 0.5 (7/0)

Distinctive Characteristics of  PVDF :

 Easier handling and tying may secure with fewer knots

Greater restistance to breaking, instrument damage and fraying.

Easier handling

Excellent pliability
Superior handling and tying characteristics
enhance ease of use.


High tensile strength
Greater resistance to handling, damage and fraying.

Low package memory

·      



·         Excellent Tying Characteristics

A practical advantage of a monofilament suture is that prepared knots can easily be placed in the required position.

 









2. Superior Knot Security

For optimal knot security: PVDF can easily be tied to a fixed knot - giving maximum security.



3. Maximum Strength Retention

PVDF is neither absorbed nor weakened by tissue enzymes.

 

 



4. Minimal Package Memory

PVDF is characterised by an ability to hold its shape and has minimal out of package memory.
