Dolphin Sutures offers a unique kit specially designed for hernia surgeries. It is a combination of 3 sutures and a polypropylene mesh which helps the surgeons and OT staffs perform the procedure.
The first suture in the hernia kit has two options; the first bears the code number TS2407U. The suture provided is 76 cm, size 3-0, Coated & Braided Polyglactin 910 Undyed absorbable suture with a length of 76 cm, the suture is attached to a 3/8 Circle Reverse Cutting 26 mm needle, which is extremely sharp and can take multiple bites on the inguinal canal thus sealing it.
The alternative to the TS2407U in the kit is TS1326, where the suture provided is 70 cm, size 3-0, Monofilament Poliglecapronone 25 Undyed absorbable suture. The suture is less elastic, has very less memory and has a very high tensile strength. The suture is equipped with a 3/8 Circle Cutting 26 mm Prime needle. The function of the suture is same i.e. suturing the inguinal canal.
