PDS Plus Antibacterial (polydioxanone) Suture

PDS Plus Antibacterial Suture is a sterile synthetic absorbable monofilament suture made from the polyester poly (p-dioxanone.) The empirical molecular formula of the polymer is (C4H6O3)n. Polydioxanone polymer has been found to be nonantigenic, nonpyrogenic and elicits only a slight tissue reaction during absorption.1 Product description and safety information is continued in the References section below.*

*PDS Plus Antibacterial Suture contains IRGACARE MP (Triclosan), a broad spectrum antibacterial agent at no more than 2360 μg/m.1 PDS Plus Antibacterial Sutures are intended for use in general soft tissue approximation, including use in pediatric cardiovascular tissue, and in ophthalmic surgery (other than contact with cornea and sclera). These sutures are particularly useful where the combination of an absorbable suture and extended wound support (up to 6 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. PDS Plus Antibacterial Suture should not be used in patients with known allergic reactions to IRGACARE MP (Triclosan).1
