The GORE-TEX® Suture is a microporous, monofilament suture of flexible biomaterial for excellent handling, reduced hole-leakage, and minimal irritation in soft tissue approximation.

Physicians depend on GORE-TEX® Sutures for numerous practical features and benefits:

  • Smart Design: High-visibility, monofilament suture features polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) biomaterial with microstructure, combined with strong and ductile 300 Series stainless steel alloy needles (tapered or piercing)
  • Blood Loss: Needles approximate thread diameter, allowing suture to fill needle hole, reducing bleeding and time to hemostasis
  • Precise Control: Minimal surface friction allows individual throws to slide easily for precise knot positioning
  • Ease of Use: Soft, flexible, and compressible sutures that are simple to identify, open, and arm without snagging or knotting of the thread

Compared to other monofilament sutures, the soft, flexible surface of the GORE-TEX® Suture results in softer knots when placed in subcutaneous tissue. This makes our suture suitable for procedures that include but are not limited to:

  • Anastomosis of vascular grafts for vascular access
  • Anastomosis of vascular grafts for peripheral vascular disease
  • Anastomosis of aortobifemoral vascular grafts
  • Chordae tendineae repair and replacement in mitral valve repair
  • Carotid endarterectomy
  • Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair
  • Open inguinal hernia repair
  • Robotic surgery
