GORE-TEX Suture is a unique, microporous, nonabsorbable monofilament made of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE), the same proven material used in other GORE Medical Products.
GORE-TEX Suture was originally developed to help minimize suture line bleeding. The unique structure allows the attachment of needles that
approximate the diameter of the thread. The GORE-TEX Suture fills the needle hole and can reduce blood loss and shorten time to hemostasis. This attribute is useful where minimizing needle hole leakage is desired.
