Quill and V-Loc Knotless Barbed Sutures

December 19, 2015

Improved wound closure involves minimizing skin trauma as well as carefully bringing together deeper layers to minimize tension for the surface layer after skin surgery.

Throughout the history a wide variety of materials have been used to close wounds including wires of gold, silver, iron, and steel; dried gut; silk; animal hairs; tree bark and other plant fibers; and, more recently, a wide selection of synthetic compositions. 

Quill SRS and V-Loc technology builds in non-slipping barbs into disolvable suture material to allow surgical wound defects after skin surgery to be closed without need for knotting sutures and using these for layered closure remove the need for surface sutures and subsequent cross hatching seen with traditional surgical closures. 

These barbed fully disolving sutures also mean that most of the time there is no need for you to return for suture removal following skin surgery.
