PDO (Polydioxanone) thread is a strong filament fibre,consisting of a few twisted solid fiber thread, which dissolves in the body tissue after a certain time
PDO material is used for more than 30 years in plastic surgery, gastroenterology, urology, gynaecology, ophthalmology for cutaneous and subcutaneous stitches. These threads have high tensile strength, excellent pliability and smooth tissue passage. This material meets all the requirements established by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) for surgical sutures.
PDO ultimately breaks down into water and carbon dioxide which are naturally absorbed into skin.
PDO cause a very mild reaction during absorption, minimal acute inflammatory reaction with subsequent formation of new collagen production around the thread (neo collagenesis).
