6/0 Coreflon PTFE Suture
Unique softness and smoothness minimise tissue trauma and prevents bacterial colonisation. No loosening of the knot. No tissue irritation. Firmly supports tissue during the healing process.
The innovative combination of a white PTFE suture with a black needle ensures excellent visibility in the surgical field.
High quality, precision needles maintain a sharp cutting edge during surgery.
In most cases Coreflon sutures can be removed after a week of healing.

Black needles are round with a reverse cutting edge for minimal tissue trauma with excellent penetration and is easily visible under soft tissue. Silver needles have a reverse cutting edge with an oval cross section for easier grip in needle holders.
