Sutures, Metallic, Stainless Steel, Multifilament

Definition : Stainless steel sutures made of several filaments (i.e., multifilament) medical-grade stainless steel alloys. These sutures are typically available in sterile, uncoated twisted thread sections (e.g., 18, 30 in [45, 76 cm] long) that may be attached to a single-use needle as an integral device. Multifilament stainless steel sutures keep their tensile strength for very long periods of time and are not absorbed by tissues; their intended use includes orthopedic procedures including cerclage, tendon and hernia repair, sternum closure (after sternotomy), and abdominal wound closure.
