Ethicon launches new Stratafix Spiral Plus Devices

The range of Stratafix Knotless Tissue Control Devices
Stratafix sutures provide more strength and security, more consistency and more efficiency than traditional suturing

Ethicon has launched the Stratafix Spiral PDS Plus and Stratafix Spiral Monocryl Plus Knotless Tissue Control Devices to its range of Stratafix Knotless Tissue Control Devices, the most comprehensive and unmatched knotless suture offering available to surgeons in the US, according to the company.

The company claims that the Stratafix Knotless Tissue Control Devices transforms the wound closure experience by providing unique advantages over traditional sutures. Stratafix sutures provide more strength and security, more consistency and more efficiency than traditional suturing. The portfolio of knotless sutures also enables surgeons to more easily manage tension and control tissue approximation with each pass during closure and eliminates the need to tie knots.

“I call it the suture of the future,” said Dr James Dan Kondrup, a minimally invasive gynecologic surgeon of Lourdes Hospital in Binghamton, NY. “Any case where I can use Stratafix sutures, I will.”

The versatile Stratafix portfolio of knotless sutures will help surgeons to achieve the optimal clinical outcome for each tissue type, from skin and fat layers to fascia and organs. Stratafix Spiral Plus sutures boast exceptional wound holding strength, Ethicon claims, while offering a smooth glide through tissue and are available in both bidirectional and a unidirectional design with an adjustable fixation loop.

These new sutures are made with proprietary polymers, premium needles and Plus antibacterial coating that continue to deliver the optimal wound closure experience surgeons and health care practitioners expect from Ethicon.

“With more than 60 years of experience, Ethicon has become synonymous with surgical sutures,” said Liza Ovington, Franchise Medical Director for Ethicon. “Ethicon will continue to innovate in wound closure working to provide solutions that elevate the standard of care for surgeons and the patients they serve.”

Stratafix Knotless Tissue Control Devices can address tissue repair needs in a broad range of surgical specialties including bariatric, orthopaedic, plastic, gynaecological, general, colorectal, and urological procedures. The Stratafix Knotless Tissue Control Devices are available in short-term, long-term, and non-absorbable polymers in a portfolio of sizes and lengths, with multiple needle types, to address the needs of multiple procedures, including open, laparoscopic, and robotic.
