Surgical Steel Sutures

Surgical Steel sutures are non-absorbable, sterile, surgical sutures composed of high quality stainless steel. Because of its high tensile strength, it exhibits very minimal loss over time and has low tissue reactivity. surgical steel is available as a monofilament. Surgical Steel is recommended for surgeries ranging from orthopedic surgery to sternal closure. Due to its rigidity, extreme care should be used when handling surgical steel to avoid fragmentation, which could pose harm to both the surgeon and patient.

Distinctive Characteristics of Surgical Steel Sutures:

Exceptional tensile strength

- Excellent tissue compatibility

Steel sutures are for use in abdominal wound closure, intestinal anastomosis, hernia repair and sternal closure. These sutures comply with the requirements of U.S. Pharmacopoeia (U.S.P.) and The European Pharmacopoeia (PhEUR) except for an occassional slight deviation in diameter in some gauge sizes. Description Steel wire is a non-absorbable twisted or monofilament suture made of corrosion-resistant steel, for orthopaedic surgery. Steel wire is the basis for products like the Sternum Set.
