The Endure Absorbable PDO Suture is a sterile, Monofilament, synthetic suture composed of Polydioxanone and the structure consists of monofilament. These sutures are particularly useful where the combination of an absorbable suture and extended wound support (up to six weeks) is desirable. Contraindications consist of the approximation of tissue under tension and the suturing of synthetic implants (i.e. vascular grafts and cardiac valves).
Our PDO Sutures meet the requirements of the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) monograph requirements for absorbable surgical sutures. Wesuture is the brand name of surgical sutures by Endure Industries.
