Abstract

1428560 Sutures ETHICON INC 23 July 1973 [24 July 1972] 34967/73 Heading A5R A multifilament suture may be made by winding a strand of suture material onto a rack under tension, dipping a section, intended for eventual cutting, of the wound strand into a supply of binder material while under tension removing the strand on the rack from the binder supply and air drying the binder-coated strand before releasing it from the rack. Sutures may be manufactured, and swaged on to surgical needles, as described in Specification 1428559. The suture may be braided, and made of resin, e.g. polyester or epoxy resin, synthetic polymers, or cotton, linen or silk.
