Suture selection is dependent upon different factors like the anatomic site, the required suture characteristics and the surgeon's preference. dtek sutures are made of high initial tensile strength, guaranteed holding power through the critical wound healing period, with smooth passage though the tissue and ease of handling.
dtek surgical needles are manufactured in a wide range of types, shapes, lengths and thickness made of high quality stainless steel, sharp enough to penetrate through the tissue with minimal resistance. There is no standardized sizing system available for needles or needle holders however the main consideration in needle selection is to minimize trauma. The length, diameter, and curvature of the needle influence the surgeon's ability to place a suture.
