Advantages of i-THREAD
i-THREAD is an aseptic monofilament synthetic absorption suture consisting of polyester, poly (p-dioxanone). Polydioxanone sutures are supported for longer periods comparing to other synthetic absorbent sutures. Polydioxanone suture also provides a much better tensile strength.
When injected into the body, it absorbs slowly for 90 to 120 days. In this process, the body absorbs and produces collagen to improve the elasticity of the injection site. The effect of i-Thread typically lasts about two years. It is also a pain-free procedure that requires no anesthesia (local anesthesia may be used if the patient is less resistant to pain).
A thorough evaluation of the product attached to the hand fusion can result in sutures often being exaggerated without incremental increases.
