Gore-Tex CV-0 Suture ePTFE nonabsorbable monofilament th-50
Part #0U01B Exp 12/07
The GORE-TEX CV-0 Suture is a microporous, monofilament suture of flexible biomaterial for excellent handling, reduced hole-leakage, and minimal irritation in soft tissue approximation.
Physicians depend on GORE-TEX Sutures for numerous practical features and benefits:
Smart Design: High-visibility, monofilament suture features polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) biomaterial with microstructure, combined with strong and ductile 300 Series stainless steel alloy needles (tapered or piercing)
Blood Loss: Needles approximate thread diameter, allowing suture to fill needle hole, reducing bleeding and time to hemostasis
Precise Control: Minimal surface friction allows individual throws to slide easily for precise knot positioning
Ease of Use: Soft, flexible, and compressible sutures that are simple to identify, open, and arm without snagging or knotting of the thread
In Perfect sealed condition but past expiration. Not for human use in the US.
Expiration dates have mostly to do with sterilization and not the integrity of the product. The manufacturers sterilize the products after they are packaged and it lasts so many years. The only products we caution customers about are ones that are absorbable or drug coated.
