What is it?
StitchKit® is a sterile, single-use canister that contains six strands of ePTFE suture with attached needles. It is indicated for use in all types of soft tissue approximation, including gynecologic, cardiovascular and general surgery.
The canister is designed to be easily inserted and withdrawn from the surgical field through a ≥ 12mm trocar cannula. The six sutures are stored in a suture holding compartment within the canister to allow for fast and easy removal of each individual strand.
After each suture is used, the discarded needles are placed in the disposal compartment in the canister, which is clear, allowing for easy needle counting.
Each ePTFE size CV-4 suture is a non-absorbable monofilament manufactured from polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). Each suture is approximately 21 cm, or 8 inches, in length.
Each needle is a TH-26, with taper point, ½ circle and 26m
