Challenge:
Optimizing suturing in soft tissue approximation


Choice:
GORE-TEX® Suture

Suture choice plays an important part in achieving an optimal soft tissue approximation, particularly where reduced capsule formation, inflammation and suture hole leakage are key considerations.

GORE-TEX® Suture, is a unique, microporous, nonabsorbable monofilament made of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE), the same proven material used in other Gore Medical Products. This unique material offers the benefits of both monofilament and multifilament sutures with the excellent material properties of PTFE including:

  • Soft and supple for excellent handling and minimizing the irritation caused by knots
  • No out of package memory
  • Available 1:1 needle to thread ratio to minimize needle hole bleeding at anastomoses
  • White color is highly visible in the surgical field
  • Minimal biological tissue response with cellular ingrowth
  • Easy to use packaging is industry best

Common applications include but are not limited to:
