This is what Ethicon has to say about the 1683H Suture: ETHICON™ Suture Needles Carefully selecting a surgical suture needle is a critical component in achieving excellent wound closure outcomes. The ideal surgical needle should be: Sharp enough to penetrate and carry suture through tissue with minimal resistanceSlim as possible without compromising strengthRigid to resist bending, yet ductile to resist breakingStable in the grasp of the needleholderEthicon offers over 200 types of surgical suture needles, allowing clinicians great flexibility to select the most appropriate needle for the specific needs of the tissue being repaired. ETHILON™ Nylon Suture A nonabsorbable, sterile, surgical, monofilament suture composed of the long-chain, aliphatic polymers Nylon 6 and Nylon 6.6. ETHILON suture is dyed black or green to enhance visibility in tissue. It is also available undyed (clear). ETHILON™ Nylon Suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic, and neurological procedures. ETHILON Suture elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissue, which is followed by a gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. While nylon is not absorbed, progressive hydrolysis of the nylon in vivo may result in gradual loss of tensile strength over time. Due to the gradual loss of tensile strength which may occur over prolonged periods in vivo, nylon suture should not be used where permanent retention of tensile strength is required.
