P.D.O (Polydioxanone)
Teb keyhan P.D.O is similar to the suture known as P.D.S. and is made of polydioxanone.
P.D.O (Polydioxanone)

Type
Monofilament
Composition
polyglecaprone 25, a copolymer made of 75%                            glycolide and 25% E-caprolactone
Coating
None
Colour
Beige
Tissue reaction
Minimal
Absorption
The hydrolytic action, by which the material is broken down, results in a total absorption in approximately 60 to 120 days. Approximately 60% of tensile strength remains after 7 days.


CHRACTERISTICS
BENEFITS
High tensile strength
Excellent tissue support
Synthetic
Minimal tissue reaction
Absorption by hydrolysis
Predictable absorption rate
Monofilament whit microscopic uniform diameter
soft passage through the tissue without sawing, tissue drag and trauma Absence of capillarity (no support of bacterial growth) Excellent knot tie down.
Pliability and softness
Good handling properties Easy and secure knotting

Description
Teb keyhan P.D.O is similar to the suture known as P.D.S. and is made of polydioxanone. It is a monofilament Synthetic absorbable suture. The absorption mechanism is a slow progressive hydrolysis which is minimal until approximately 90 days post-implantation and is complete with in 180 to 210 days. P.D.O has been found to be non-antigenic, non-pyrogenic and elicits only a slight tissue reaction during absorption. This suture has an excellent pliability, very high initial tensile strength and smooth tissue passage. It is available in violet color. P.D.O is sterilized by Ethylene Oxide. Available sizes are presented in the attached table.

Indication
-General surgery
-Gastroenterology

-Plastic surgery
-Gynecology

Contra- Indication
-Cardiovascular surgery
-Neurosurgery
-Microsurgery
-Prosthetic devices
-When a wound support of more than 6 weeks is required.
-Caution in patient with delayed wound healing (e.g. compromised immunity system)

Packaging
Teb Keyhan P.D.O is packed as follow:
Single or Double-needled gauge sizes 6/0 to 1 (U.S.P) with suture length of 30 to 90 cm in boxes containing 12 or 24 sachets of sterilized ready-to-use suture based on customer's preference.

Expiration
Teb Keyhan P.D.O sutures are usable for up 5 years from their manufacturing date.
