Overview

ETHIBOND EXCEL Suture is a nonabsorbable, braided, sterile, surgical suture composed of Poly (ethylene terephthalate). It is prepared from fibers of high molecular weight, long-chain, linear polyesters having recurrent aromatic rings as an integral component.

The suture is uniformly coated with polybutilate or poly {oxy-1, 4 butanediyloxy (1, 6-dioxo-1, 6 hexanediyl)}. The highly adherent coating is a relatively nonreactive nonabsorbable compound which acts as a lubricant to mechanically improve the physical properties of the uncoated suture by improving handling qualities as contrasted to the braided, uncoated fiber.

ETHIBOND EXCEL Suture is braided for optimal handling properties, and dyed green for enhanced visibility in the surgical field.

Description & Specs

ETHIBOND EXCEL Suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic and neurological procedures.

ETHIBOND EXCEL Suture – designed for superior performance

ETHIBOND EXCEL® Polyester Suture
  • The unique center core and braid construction of ETHIBOND EXCEL Suture delivers superior strength for greater confidence1
  • Sixteen carriers and a polybutylate coating promote superior knot slide performance

ETHIBOND EXCEL Suture – designed for superior performance

ETHIBOND EXCEL Suture elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissue, followed by a gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. Implantation studies in animals show no meaningful decline in polyester suture strength over time. Both the polyester fiber suture material and the polybutilate coating are pharmacologically inactive.
