• absorbable
  • It results from our discovery that sutum formed of absorbable protein such as animal tissue when stored in solutions of critical proportions of the propyl alcohols have unexpected properties and marked advantages over sutures heretofore known. (google.com)
  • The most extensively used sutures are of proteinaceous material which is absorbable in the human body, such as animal tissues. (google.com)
  • Currently polyglycolide and its copolymers (poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) with lactic acid, poly(glycolide-co-caprolactone) with ε-caprolactone and poly (glycolide-co-trimethylene carbonate) with trimethylene carbonate) are widely used as a material for the synthesis of absorbable sutures and are being evaluated in the biomedical field.

  • tensile
  • Sutures tubed in them swell, losing specific tensile strength (that is, tensile strength per unit of cross-sectional area), lose total tensile strength, and are apt to fray. (google.com)
  • In addition, a given suture, tubed in standard softening solutions loses total tensile strength. (google.com)
  • These two phenomena combine to reduce materially the total or effective tensile strength of sutures having a given final size when tubed in softening fluids heretofore known. (google.com)
  • Factors that influence dimensional structure of fibrin gel giving rise to fine or coarse gel Changing concentration of fibrinogen Changing concentration of thrombine- increase concentration increases ultimate tensile strength and youngs modulus of gel Changing concentration of calcium pH Temperature It may also contain aprotinin, fibronectin and plasminogen. (wikipedia.org)
  • Melting point 175 °C., and glass transition temperature 2 °C. Tensile strength 40 MPa, close to that of polypropylene. (wikipedia.org)
  • glass
  • In order to provide surgeons with sutures which are both sterile and soft and therefore ready to use, it has been the practice to pack the suture in a glass tube containin a preserving or conditioning liquid, called tubing fluid, the tube being sealed hermetically either before or after sterilizing the suture, depending on the nature of the suture and the particular tubing fluid used. (google.com)
  • water
  • The bcilable tubing fluids are inert to the suture at temperatures considerably above that of boiling water, and so permit the tubed suture to be boiled either to sterilize the suture within the tube or to sterilize the suture within the tube or to sterilize the outside of the tube without damaging the suture. (google.com)
  • The non-boilable fluids are those which cannot be boiled because at the temperature of boiling water they damage the suture. (google.com)
  • When such sutures have been tubed in boilable tubing I fluids (which, as so far known, retain the stiffness of the gut) the softening has been accomplished customarily by soaking the suture in a softening liquid, usually water, after removal from the tube. (google.com)
  • Briefly, the procedure is as follows: glycolic acid is heated at atmospheric pressure and a temperature of about 175-185 °C is maintained until water ceases to distill. (wikipedia.org)
  • the reduction from the primitive condition of eight wall plates to six is believed to decrease water loss even further by reducing the number of sutures through which water can escape. (wikipedia.org)
  • generally
  • The cosmetic outcome of the closure is comparable or generally better than an equivalent suture substitute with least amount of scarring visible after three to six months. (wikipedia.org)
  • liquid
  • 128-3355) This invention relates to surgical suturm, and particularly to the composition of the liquid in which sutures are usually packed and stored. (google.com)
  • range
  • Environmental ranges Depth range (m): 2.75 - 18 Temperature range (°C): 23.720 - 23.720 Nitrate (umol/L): 0.501 - 0.501 Salinity (PPS): 36.080 - 36.080 Oxygen (ml/l): 4.807 - 4.807 Phosphate (umol/l): 0.100 - 0.100 Silicate (umol/l): 0.805 - 0.805 Ithycythara lanceolata (C. B. Adams, 1850). (wikipedia.org)
  • The Iapetus ocean was replaced with a suture line and mountain range when Laurentia, Baltica and Avalonia continents collided. (wikipedia.org)
  • small
  • A frayed suture is one in which small fragments of gut break and stand out from the strin like whiskers. (google.com)
