Vicryl sutures are synthetic and absorbable. They are coated with polyglactin and can be used in general soft tissue surgery including ophthalmic procedures. Vicryl Rapide sutures can be absorbed faster than any other suture in the Ethicon range, making them the best choice for closure of superficial wounds where there are no complications and quick healing is expected.

Cheap vicryl sutures to buy can be used in accident and emergency departments to repair lacerations and shallow cuts.

Because they are absorbable, aftercare is simpler. There is no difference in the type of scar left if the vicryl option is used instead of nylon non-absorbable sutures. So you can save money when you buy cheap vicryl sutures instead of more expensive options.

Vicryl Rapide sutures are better suited for paediatric laceration repair, due to their simplicity and speed of absorption.

Vicryl sutures are not suitable for use in closing cardiovascular or neurological tissue, however. For that, you will need polyester, nylon or silk sutures, which are non-absorbable.

Monocryl Sutures For Sale

Monocryl sutures are available in violet and clear options. Monocryl sutures are absorbable monofilament sutures often used for subcutaneous facial wound closure.

Ethibond Excel polyester sutures are braided and dyed bright green to help visibility. Unlike vicryl rapide sutures, these can be used in cardiovascular and neurological surgery as well as ophthalmic procedures.

Alternatively, if you need to buy polyester sutures, you could consider using Mersilene polyester fibre sutures. These are non-absorbable, sterile and braided.

Nylon sutures from Ethilon and Nurolon are both suitable for use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic, and neurological surgery.

Perma-hand silk sutures are another option for closing cardiovascular, ophthalmic, and neurological surgical incisions. They are non-absorbable.

PDS II sutures are general surgical sutures that can be used in orthopaedic, gastrointestinal and paediatric cardiovascular procedures.

Prolene polypropylene sutures, available in blue or undyed options, are non-absorbable but can be left safely deep within the body indefinitely. They can also be removed if used on the surface of the skin.

Surgical stainless-steel sutures can be used for abdominal, intestinal, hernia and skin closure. They require the use of a Roto-Grip or SCC needle, which is supplied with the sutures.

The Stratafix wholesale range of sutures and tissue control devices are barbed and use anchors to stay fixed in soft tissue. This eliminates the need for knots, these sutures arent cheap but this is because they are great quality.

Dermabond skin adhesive is used to bond wound edges together. It is suitable for use on incisions or lacerations which would otherwise require 5-0 sutures or smaller. Prineo skin closure dressings use a mesh and liquid system to promote steady healing.

Except for stainless steel sutures and when performing cardiovascular surgery, Ethicon suture needles can be used with all these sutures.

For cardiovascular surgery, Everpoint silicone-coated cardiovascular needles offer better performance.

Buy Sutures Online With Us

Consultants often have preferences regarding their surgical kit. They will specify glove size, scrub and footwear size, even the size of needle or suture they prefer to use for a particular procedure.

They do not usually buy medical sutures themselves, and the surgery they perform may limit their choice. Buyers should have a range of suppliers they can call on to source particular items, in case of supply or delivery issues, consultant preference or patient requirements.
