This Webinar will touch on two recent advancements in Medical Monofilaments: Implantable ePTFE Suture and LCP Monofilament for MRI interventional procedures.

ePTFE Suture Monofilament is a widely used for implantable applications in the cardiovascular, structural heart, and peripheral medical markets including chordae tendineae repair, chest wall reconstruction, and other thoracic surgeries. The ability to have a suture that is soft, flexible, and has excellent drape that can also be positioned into a strong knot is not only critical for these applications, but preferred by clinicians. While most focus on the development of finished medical devices, Zeus supplies ePTFE Suture as a component allowing end users to private label with their own packaging, length, and swaged needle design. Our product is offered in 6 standard sizes that meet or exceed nonsterile knot strength for USP 1, 0, 2-0, 3-0, 4-0, and 5-0.

With recent renewed interest in the development of a MRI-compatible catheter, our LCP monofilament is an ideally suited material for catheter braiding reinforcement used as a replacement for metal wire braiding such as stainless steel. Our LCP allows the catheter to retain excellent torquability, pushability, and distal end deflectability.
