13 Dafilon






Dafilon® helps to reduce bacterial adherence Surgical site infections may increase a patient`s hospital stay by seven to ten days1, increasing direct cost of hospitalization. Bacterial adherence to suture materials plays a significant role in the induction of surgical infection, it is important to choose the right material to reduce this risk. Taking The Monofilament Advantage of our suture portfolio combined with the benefits of non-absorbable monofilaments, Dafilon® will become the precise option to provide reliability and good cosmetic results. The ideal suture is the one offering the exact properties that the surgeon needs at each moment. In plastic and reconstructive surgery, the treatment of skin closure is essential to achieve the best results and patient satisfaction. Thread handling and knotting are fundamental elements for skin approximation. Dafilon®, our non-absorbable synthetic monofilament suture made of polyamide, gives reliability in all these properties. The main advantages of using a monofilament suture are:

  • Less infection promoting effect
  • More gentle pass through the tissue
  • Reliable Knotting

Dafi lon® manages to combine the two advantages that make it an exceptional thread for skin closure in smooth passage through the tissue, less infection promoting effect (Alexander JW, Solomkin JS, Edwards MJ. Updated Recommendations for Control of Surgical Site Infections. Annals of Surgery. 2011;253(6):1082-93.) and ease of removal that improves the process of stitch extraction.
