Dosage & Administration
In handling this suture material, care should be taken to avoid damage from handling. Avoid crushing or crimping damage due to application of surgical instruments such as forceps or needle holders. Adequate knot security requires the accepted surgical technique of flat, square ties of single suture strands. The use of additional throws is particularly appropriate when knotting polypropylene sutures. To avoid damaging needle points and swage areas, grasp the needle in an area one-third (1/3) to one-half (1/2) of the distance from the swaged end to the point. Reshaping needles may cause them to lose strength and be less resistant to bending and breaking. Discard used needles in waste bin.
Store this suture below 250 C. Keep away from moisture and direct heat. Do not use if the date is expired.
Each box contains 6, 12 packs of Polypropylene (Blue) suture.
