Coreflon is a sterile, non-absorbable, monofilament surgical surgical suture material consisting of high-density polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and a surgical needle manufactured from silicone-treated stainless steel.
PTFE thread is characterized by smooth, uniform surface. It has no depressions or irregularities, in which bacteria and contaminations could accumulate. It has no capillary properties. The properties of PTFE suture make it especially useful for the approximization of delicate tissues, sensitive to infection, particularly in a wet environment with considerable bacterial flora. An important feature of PTFE is its fluent passage through tissues, which minimizes damage to tissue during the procedure of suturing a wound.
Coreflon is not dyed and it contains no additional substances. The size of suture is in accordance with the standards of the European Pharmacopoeia and US Pharmacopoeia.
The surgical needles used meet the highest quality standards, are not prone to deformations and are exceptionally sharp.
Coreflon can be used in procedures of anastomosing wounds in the area of mucous membrane and skin, especially in stomatological, gynaecological, laryngological, and plastic surgery procedures.
How it works
Studies in the last 20 years have shown that polytetrafluoroethylene is a polymer with high biocompatibility which causes minimum tissue reaction. Coreflon is delivered in the form of sterile threads of varying diameter and length, with permanently attached needles of varying geometry depending on the intended use. The support given to tissues by Coreflon does not lessen with time nor under the influence of tissue enzymes. Coreflon is a particularly soft thread. The aggregation of bacteria, contaminations, and other undesirable substances such as dental plaque on the surface of Coreflon is minimal. Coreflon combines the advantages of absorbable and non-absorbable surgical sutures.
