OBJECTIVE To test the tensile properties of knotted suture made of 4 different suture materials and exposed to petroleum gauze. STUDY DESIGN We tested the tensile strength of United States Pharmacopeia size 0-0 gauge polydioxanone, polyglyconate, glycolide/lactide copolymer, and silk when exposed to petroleum packing or saline. Suture materials were randomized, and knots were tied and then evaluated via tensiometer to the point of knot failure. RESULTS A total of 285 knots were tied in 8… CONTINUE READING
