Antibacterial Sutures

Surgical infections are extremely significant and serious problems in terms of mortality, morbidity, hospital expenses, and increased hospitalisation time. Infection problems may slow down the person that underwent surgical operation to go back to business and family life. Our anti-bacterial surgical sutures that prevent development of such infections both shortens treatment processes and minimise possible problems associated with treatment.

Anti-bacterial sutures offer anti-bacterial effect with at most 60mg/m large spectrum anti-bacterial agent chlorhexidine diacetate (CHA) content. These sutures provide protection against bacterial colonisation. Also, these sutures create an inhibition area against pathogens that cause surgical site infection.

Absorbable Structure

All our anti-bacterial sutures have absorbable structure. Anti-bacterial absorbable sutures are absorbed by the body with hydrolysis or enzymatically. Anti-bacterial absorbable sutures completes its job and absorbed and disappeared in time. After absorption time is completed, there are no foreign materials/objects inside the body. Anti-bacterial absorbable sutures provide excellent tissue support and cause fewer tissue reaction.

Anti-bacterial absorbable sutures offers minimum tissue trauma, minimum capillarity, ease of knotting and adjustment and these sutures can be found in multifilament (braided) and monofilament form. Anti-bacterial sutures are covered with chemicals proven to have superb effect on bacteria.
