Stainless Steel Sutures

 

Stainless steel sutures are composed of 316L stainless steel conforming to ASTM Standard F138 Grade 2 “Stainless steel bar and wire for surgical implants”. STEEL sutures meet all requirements established by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and European Pharmacopeia (EP) for non absorbable surgical sutures. Stainless steel sutures are the most inert among all suture materials and provide maximum tensile strength. Stainless steel sutures are indicated for use in abdominal wound closure, intestinal anastomosis, hernia repair, sternal closure and also for certain orthopedic procedures (cerclage or tendon repair). The steel suture is very malleable even with high tensile strength and is resistant to breakage during knotting. The suture merges with the contours of the bone.

 

Distinctive Characteristics of steel suture:

  • Steel suture is a non-absorbable suture.
  • Sturdy yet soft to have a better knotting and turning without breakages.
  • Rust proof and stays in the body life long.
