Transcript

  • 1. Absorbable Sutures Absorbable sutures as the name suggests are absorbable in nature, which are broken down within the tissues and absorbed to the body after a period of time, which can be from ten days to eight weeks. And hence it is mainly used in the internal tissues of the body. WWW.SUTURES.IN
  • 2. - CATGUT SUTURES WWW.SUTURES.IN
  • 3. CATGUT ABSORPTION WWW.SUTURES.IN PLAIN CHROMIC WOUND SUPPORT 7 – 10 days 17 – 21 days MASS ABSORPTION 60 – 90 days 90 – 110 days
  • 4. – CHROMIC GUT Made from Sub Mucosa of Sheep Intestine Chromicising done to ensure tensile strength WWW.SUTURES.IN
  • 5. CATGUT ABSORPTION Absorption by Enzymatic action Absorption is unpredictable Tissue reaction can occur WWW.SUTURES.IN
  • 6. CATGUT SUMMARY Used in soft tissues like subcutaneous fat, peritoneum, Uterine closure and ligation DISADVANTAGE Absorption by Enzymatic action Tissue Reactions occur Unpredictable Absorption WWW.SUTURES.IN

  • 10. SUMMARY WWW.SUTURES.IN Braided Synthetic Absorbable Coating on Hincryl Strong Good Knotting and handling Properties Few Tissue Reaction Predictable Absorption No Foreign body left Minimizing problems of multifilament Knot slides down easily Minimal Tissue Reaction
  • 11. Applications of For Obs & Gynaecs – Procedures – Hysterectomy (Closing the vaginal vault after removing the uterus). C section – To close the uterus after delivering the baby. General procedures like kidney operation (closure of muscles of abdominal wall), Repair of incisional and ventral Hernias, Chest wall closure. Apart from the above it is also used by Plastic surgeons, Pediatric surgeons & Urologists. WWW.SUTURES.IN
  • 12. WWW.SUTURES.IN HINCRYL Synthetic absorbable Polyglycolic acid (PGA) sutures Pronounced tissue reaction in- vivo using natural absorbables Tissue reaction is less using Synthetic absorbables
  • 13. HINGLACT – Polyglactin 910 WWW.SUTURES.IN
  • 14. Characteristics Copolymer of lactide and polyglycolide Synthetic absorbable braided suture Coated for easy tissue passage, precise knot placement and smooth tie down The water repelling quality of lactide slows down the loss of tensile strength and the bulkiness of lactide leads to rapid absorption of the suture once the tensile strength is lost. Causes minimal tissue reaction Absorption time is 56-70 days WWW.SUTURES.IN

  • 16. Applications of Hinglact 910 1) Soft tissue approximation 2) Ligation 3) Ophthalmic procedures 4) Urology (Urinary tract surgery – Closure of the tissues in the urinary tract to prevent escape of urine to surrounding tissues) 5) General surgeries WWW.SUTURES.IN

  • 19. Hinocryl- Polyglecaprolactone WWW.SUTURES.IN
  • 20. Characteristics •Hincoryl is a synthetic, monofilament absorbable suture. It is composed of poliglecaprone 25, which is a copolymer of glycolide and epsilon- caprolactone. It comes both dyed (violet) and undyed (clear). •Monocryl has a low tissue reactivity, maintains high tensile strength, and has a half-life of 7 to 14 days. At 1 week, its in vivo tensile strength is at 50-60% undyed, (60-70% dyed), at 2 weeks its 20-30% undyed (30-40% dyed). •Completely hydrolyzed by 91–119 days. It is rarely used for percutaneous skin closure, and is not used in areas of high tension (e.g. fascia). •It is generally used for soft-tissue approximation and ligation. It is used frequently for subcuticular dermis closures of the face. It has less of a tendency to exit through the skin after it breaks down, such as Polyglactin 910. It is for usage in ophthalmic and microsurgery. Also used in Gastro intestinal areas, Oral mucosa and bowel anastomosis. WWW.SUTURES.IN

  • 22. Hinglact Prime Polyglactin 910 Anti-bacterial Sutures Polyglactin 910, a copolymer of 90% glycolide and 10% Polylactide coated with Polyglactin 370 and calcium stearate. HINGLACT PRIME contains Chlorhexidine acetate a broad spectrum antibacterial agent with novel mechanism of action. Virtues ◦ Superior pliability ◦ Less tissue drag ◦ Complete absorption within 56 to 70 days ◦ Wound Support up to 30 days ◦ Antibacterial activity WWW.SUTURES.IN
