non-absorbable sterile surgical suture
DAMALENE® suture is a synthetic non-absorbable sterile surgical suture, composed of sotactic crystalline stereoisomer of Polypropylene, a synthetic linar polyolefin. It is Monofilament dyed sutures.
DAMALENE® suture has high in vivo tensile strength and has the further advantages of being remarkably smooth & easy to handle resulting in minimal tissue trauma.
DAMALENE® suture complies with the requirements of the United States pharmacopoeia U.S.P. and European pharmacopoeia Ph. Eur. and European Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC.
DAMALENE® suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and ligation, including use in cardio vascular, ophthalmic, plastic and neurological procedures.
Users should be familiar with surgical procedures and techniques involving non-absorbable sutures before employing DAMALENE® suture for wound closure, as risk of wound dehiscence may vary with the site of application and the suture material used.
As with any foreign body, prolonged contact of any suture with salt solutions, such as those found in the urinary or biliary tracts may result in calculus formation. Acceptable surgical practice should be followed for the management of contaminated or infected wounds.
Discard opened packages and unused sutures.
