Medipac Profimed PTFE sutures are an advanced medical product widely used in surgical procedures for their exceptional qualities and benefits. Profimed is a synthetic monofilament non-absorbable sterile surgical suture made from Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) polymer, a high-quality synthetic material known for its biocompatibility, strength, and durability. The Medipac Profimed PTFE sutures offer a comprehensive range of options to cater to different surgical needs.
The available range of Medipac Profimed PTFE sutures in Australia and New Zealand includes 4/0, 5/0 and 6/0 single needle sutures with a 3/8 circle reverse cutting needle with a thread length of 45cm ensuring versatility and compatibility with different tissues and surgical techniques.
The PTFE material used in the sutures is non-absorbable, allowing for long-term tissue support. The material enables smooth tissue passage during the suturing process, reducing tissue trauma, and promoting better healing outcomes. The sutures are also inert and resistant to chemical degradation, ensuring prolonged strength retention and minimising the risk of tissue reaction or infection.
The benefits of Medipac Profimed PTFE sutures are significant. Their high tensile strength provides excellent wound support and reduces the likelihood of suture breakage. The non-absorbable nature allows for prolonged wound support, making them ideal for applications where long-term tissue integrity is required. Additionally, their non-reactive properties minimise the risk of adverse reactions and promote better biocompatibility. The smooth surface of the sutures enables easier knot tying and suture manipulation, facilitating efficient and precise surgical techniques.
