Experimental and clinical investigations on the suitability of polydioxanone threads for cerclage of the eyeball.

Abstract

Absorbable polydioxanone (PDS; Ethicon) threads were used for cerclage of the eyeball. Experimental investigations on rabbits have proved that PDS is well tolerated by surrounding eye tissues, does not cause any side effects, and has a sufficiently long time of absorption to ensure chorioretinal cicatrization. 81.25% of reattachments were achieved in humans… (More)
