PDS II (polydioxanone) Suture

PDS II Suture is a sterile synthetic absorbable monofilament suture made from the polyester (p-dioxanone.)1 PDS II sutures are intended for use in general soft tissue approximation, including use in paediatric cardiovascular tissue, in microsurgery and in ophthalmic surgery. These sutures are particularly useful where the combination of an absorbable suture and extended wound support (up to six weeks) is desirable.1 These sutures, being absorbable, should not be used where prolonged (beyond 6 weeks) approximation of tissues under stress is required or in conjunction with prosthetic devices, for example, heart valves or synthetic grafts.1
