Speed of a running stitch.
Security of an interrupted stitch.
The Quill barbed suture is a proven wound closure device that eliminates the need to tie knots during soft tissue approximation.
Quill uses a running stitch to hold wound edges together with the strength of an interrupted suture.
The barbs lock the suture in place, maintaining tension the length of the wound.
- Produces better apposition.
- Improves cosmesis.
- Eliminates knots for a faster close.
- Requires less foreign material, no knots under the skin.
- Avoids irritating staples.

Quill Veterinary Configurations
Quill comes in two barb configurations; bi-directional and uni-directional.
Bi-directional Quill is a double-armed suture. Barbs reverse direction at the mid-point of the suture.
Uni-directional Quill is a single armed suture. The suture is anchored using the adjustable loop at the apex of the wound
How QUILL™ Veterinary Barbed Suture Works
Anchor the suture
With the Quill™ needle, take initial bite of tissue on either side of the apex of the wound. Then, pass the needle through the variable loop. Cinch down to engage the barbs at the fixation point.
Run the stitch
Continue to approximate the tissue in a running fashion until you reach the end of the wound.
Corza Medical has been at the forefront of automation in needle manufacturing, with German-designed robotics delivering unmatched consistency. For over 20 years, our needles have been engineered for strength, sharpness, and ductility providing consistency with each pass.View Needle Info
