Few procedural areas demand the same degree of performance and reliability as cardiovascular surgery. From CABG to valve replacements, surgeons depend on needles and sutures for successful outcomes. Our Sharpoint™ portfolio of cardiovascular needles blend the optimal combination of materials, geometries, coatings and finishing work to provide surgeons a solution that lets them focus on the patient, not the suture.
- Needles forged from an alloy of iron, nickel and chromium to deliver strength, ductility and hardness
- Finished with a proprietary process and multi-layer silicone coating
- Precision point geometry reduces penetration force and enables penetration of calcified tissue
- Small needle to suture diameter ratio, reducing the risk of leakage at needle tract
- Available with polypropylene monofilament and coated braided polyester
