    Double Needle Threads 23 cm - Definisse

    Description

    - Resorbable support threads with bi-directional and converging notches and a straight incision needle at each end. Notched length of 12 cm. Individual bag. Easy handling and fast results.

    - Definisse sutures are a range of synthetic monofilament (L-polylactic acid and caprolactone, p(LA-CL)) notched sutures indicated when tissue support is required.

    - The notches in the Definisse absorbable support sutures are designed to provide an immediate lifting effect, as well as a delayed lifting effect through fibrosis along the suture.

    - The notches along the support threads act as anchor points to strengthen and support the surrounding tissue.

    - Once the support threads are in place, the notches open like mini umbrellas to form a support structure that lifts the loose skin.

    - With these notched sutures, it is possible to form a "J-stitch".

    Property

    • Definisse Threads absorbable support sutures are composed of a mixture of L-polylactic acid and caprolactone.
    • A tensile test conducted on Definisse Threads versus PLLA and another type of commercially available PLLA-co-PCL support threads showed that Definisse Threads were approximately twice as strong as the other support threads tested.
    • Definisse Threads resorbable support threads show greater elasticity and lower plasticity than p(LA) support threads, as indicated by measurements of percent maximum deformation and percent recovery after application - removal of load.
    • Definisse Threads were more affected by wear (maximum force of -23% for 23cm threads and -14% for 12cm threads). The maximum force decreased by 10% for PLLA threads and 9% for the other PLLA-co-PCL threads tested.
