UNISYNTH PDS – Monofilament Polydioxanone
UNISYNTH PDS (polydioxanone) monofilament synthetic absorbable suture is prepared from the polyester, poly (p-dioxanone).
Two important characteristics describe the in vivo performance of absorbable sutures first tensile strength retention and second the absorption rate (loss of mass). UNISYNTH PDS synthetic absorbable suture has been formulated to minimize the variability of these characteristics and to provide wound support through an extended healing period.
