Evaluation: Medtronic Surgilon and Ti-Cron—Nonabsorbable, Synthetic, Braided Sutures
July 19, 2017 | Evaluations & Guidance
Medtronic's Surgilon braided nylon suture product line is a fair choice for a nonabsorbable, synthetic suture, as it failed to securely hold a knot. However, Ti-Cron braided polyester suture product line is a good choice for a nonabsorbable, synthetic suture as it met all of ECRI Institute's performance criteria. Both products demonstrated minimal out-of-package memory.
