Tevdek® | Polydek® | Cottony II Braided Polyester Suture

Deknatel® Braided Polyester Suture is stronger than silk and provides long-lasting support. The unique PTFE coating and impregnation process used on both Tevdek® and Polydek® Suture helps to reduce "dead space" in the braid, rendering the suture material virtually inert and reducing the risk of wicking and tissue reactivity while providing superior lubricity.

Polyester Suture

Tevdek® Suture was the first braided polyester suture introduced over 35 years ago and originally developed for heart valve implantation.

  • Heavy PTFE coating and tight weave provide minimum friction, allowing suture to pass easily through the most friable tissue
  • Knots slide smoothly

Silky II Polydek® Suture is the same strong braided polyester substrate as Tevdek® Suture, but with a lighter PTFE treatment.

  • Tightly braided Polydek® Suture is lightly coated with PTFE and handles and ties just like silk
  • Smoother, stronger and longer lasting than silk

Cottony II is the uncoated version of our polyester suture.

  • "Mechanical softening" process makes the polyester Cottony II suture feel as soft and smooth as cotton

K-Point Needle

K-Point Needles – for cardiovascular and orthopedic surgical applications

  • K-Point needles combine a scalpel sharp cutting edge with a taper point geometry
  • Cutting edge does not extend beyond the taper of the needle, yet easily cuts through the toughest tissue
  • Taper point makes a round hole to minimize bleeding
  • Unique design allows for the sharpest penetration with the least amount of tissue trauma

NextStitch® Valve Implantation Device


NextStitch® Valve Suturing enables perfect approximation of adjacent sutures by placing two sutures with a single needle pass, eliminating the risk of damaging a suture with an adjacent needle.

  • Fewer needle punctures to the annulus
  • Simplifies precise placement of adjacent sutures
  • Eliminates risk of damaging a suture with an adjacent needle
