Covidien introduces new non-absorbable wound closure device

Covidien has introduced V-Loc Polybutester (PBT), a non-absorbable wound closure device, to permanently close internal and external wounds.

The V-Loc PBT’s proprietary self-anchoring loop and barb combination aid surgeons to close wounds without tying knots or changing standard closure techniques.

Covidien Wound Closure Global Product Marketing vice president Peter Schommer said with this new addition to their knotless suture portfolio, surgeons have an even broader array of choices for closing surgical incisions safely, quickly and effectively.
