A Knotless Suture – Read more about the benefits of this!
Thank you all for your wonderful feedback on Facebook last week! There are many technologies out in the wound closure market such as removal sutures, absorbable sutures, staples, clips, steri-strips, sealants/glue, etc; however a knotless suture that Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani is utilizing is fascinating technology that I wanted to enlighten my readers on.
The Quill™ suture is truly an amazing and extradordinary tissue closure device that does not require knots, so it is designed to self-anchor itself! The suture is not smooth to feel, it has a barbed-design which is bi-directional. The Quill™ suture is manufactured by Angiotech. The suture is especially useful during abdominoplasty procedures to repair the muscle damage that was done with pregnancy. It is the only closure device that eliminates the need to tie knots and so the potential for knot-related complications (knot breakage, knot slippage, spitting suture, etc) are diminished. Replacing knots with this running closure reduces wound closure time and surgery time. The barbed suture provides immediate tissue hold on placement. The tensile strength and tissue-holding strength is phenomenal with this Quill™.
