Ethicon has announced the launch of Stratafix Spiral PDS Plus and Stratafix Spiral Monocryl Plus Knotless Tissue Control Devices.
Stratafix Knotless Tissue Control Devices transforms the wound closure experience by providing unique advantages over traditional sutures. Stratafix sutures provide more strength and security, more consistency and more efficiency than traditional suturing. The portfolio of knotless sutures also enables surgeons to more easily manage tension and control tissue approximation with each pass during closure and eliminates the need to tie knots.
The Stratafix portfolio of knotless sutures will help surgeons to achieve the optimal clinical outcome for each tissue type, from skin and fat layers to fascia and organs. Stratafix Spiral Plus sutures boast exceptional wound holding strength while offering a smooth glide through tissue and are available in both bidirectional and a unidirectional design with an adjustable fixation loop.
These new sutures are made with proprietary polymers, premium needles and Plus antibacterial coating that continue to deliver an optimal wound closure experience.
Stratafix Knotless Tissue Control Devices can address tissue repair needs in a broad range of surgical specialties including orthopaedic, plastic, gynecological, general, bariatric, colorectal, and urological procedures.
