Surgical needle, as well as surgical filament, must meet a number of criteria, which together define the quality and acceptability for use.

It’s not a secret that the main characteristics of surgical needles are mostly determined by the physical and chemical properties of metal alloys used in its manufacture. For the production of high quality surgical needles stainless steel of 300-400-s series (by American Iron Steel Institute) is used, which differs from stainless steel with a lower number of series, the presence of ferritin ligation which is largely determined by the strength and elasticity of the material.

An example of stainless steel for the manufacture of surgical needles is patented alloy Ethalloy, referring to 455 series and contains additives of chromium, titanium and nickel. This alloy is used by experts of the company Ethicon in the production of suture needles for high-quality contamporary suture.

Alloy Ethalloy became the basic material for the manufacture of needles unsurpassed to date for the general, cardiovascular, ocular, plastic surgery and microsurgery. At the same time, due to the properties of the alloy, steel needles are thinner without compromising of its ductility and corrosion resistance.

MediNOVA is glad to offer you the contemporary suture material, complete with the most sophisticated surgical needles made of alloy Ethalloy by ETHICON (USA).

Electrosurgical treatment is a modern hardware method of treatment, which is widely used in the fields of medicine, as general surgery, dentistry, gynecology and cosmetology. Electrosurgical treatment methods are also widely used in other areas of medicine: ophthalmology, dermatology, at pulmonary tuberculosis and others.

Electrosurgical treatment — this separation or dissection or disruption of tissue in place using HF currents.

There ere monopolar and bipolar electrosurgery.

In gynecology method electrosurgery is used for:

  • biopsies and cervical conization;
  • ectopias treatment, endometriosis, cervical ektopiona;
  • papilomm removal, warts, polyps of the cervical canal;
  • etc.

The advantages of using electrosurgery in gynecology are obvious — the treatment is of not yet parous women preserving their fertility, getting quality biological material for histological studies, etc.

The relevance of electrosurgical treatment due to the fact that erosion and other diseases of the cervix to date are very common, regardless of the age of the patients. Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is a proven cause of cervical cancer, and one of the most popular ways to deal with it is electrosurgical treatment.

WEM (Brazil) in electrosurgery is recognized throughout the world as a reliable producer and developer of electrosurgical equipment that meets all the needs of modern electrosurgery.

Contemporary Suture Material

Last years the attention of surgeons in a transaction increasingly attracts the role of suture material. This is understandable, because the vast majority of transactions suture material is essentially the only foreign body, which remains in the tissues. And naturally, that on the quality, chemical composition and structure of the material depends reaction of tissue for implantation.

Currently, an increasing number of surgeons prefer modern synthetic suture material, refusing to use in everyday practice of traditional silk and catgut.

The use of adequate suture material is one of the components of a successful operation. In modern surgery the selection of suture material primarily determined by the requirements imposed on it.

Dealing with suture material starts with its identification. And simply put — to study its packaging, which has detailed information about what is in sterile space under tight shell. The need for a correct interpretation of numbers and symbols on the label makes it possible before the operation or its phase to select the optimal suture material.

Contemporary packaging of quality Ethicon suture material is now available in two basic types: Relay system and foil pack.

When using suture material in the package type Relay shape of the distribution tray minimizes the «memory effect» of suture material and allows the surgeon or nurse easily to release filament with sliding and easy removal. Foil package allows with a slight movement to put the content on the sterile table.

At any packaging of noninvasive suture material the complete information about threads that it contains is encoded.

MediNOVA presents a full range of the most of modern and popular in the world suture material of Johnson & Johnson Ethicon (USA).
