GORE-TEX® Suture for Chordae Tendineae
Repair and replacement of chordae tendineae is a critical, exacting intracardiac procedure. GORE-TEX® Suture has been used successfully in chordae tendineae procedures for more than 20 years.
Our suture is an ePTFE, nonabsorbable monofilament available with a needle selected specifically for this application. The suture also is provided with thin ePTFE pledgets that remain soft and pliable even while becoming covered with an endothelial tissue layer. GORE-TEX® Suture is available in choice of sizes and pledget configurations.
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.
Suture choice plays an important part in achieving optimal tissue attachment, particularly where superior handling and flexibilty are key considerations.
