RESORBA® Barbed Suture
The RESORBA® Barbed Suture barbs are unidirectional oriented to allow for tissue approximation without the need to tie surgical knots. RESORBA® Barbed Suture is consisting of polyester, poly (p-dioxanone) and is dyed with D&C violet No. 2. While the formation of barbs in the RESORBA® Barbed Suture reduces the tensile strength relative to non-barbed suture material of the same size, tying of knots in non-barbed suture materials also reduces their effective strength. For this reason, the strength of the RESORBA® Barbed Suture can be compared to USP knot strength of non-barbed sutures. After implantation the breaking load is at 55% after 42 days. Absorption by hydrolysis is completed after about 180 – 220 days.
