HEMO-SEAL™ Needle-Suture Technology

A unique needle-suture combination which helps preserve visualization of the surgical site and enables accurate bite placement by dramatically reducing needle hole bleeding.

Because every drop matters

HEMO-SEAL™ preserves this precious resource

During surgery, bleeding can disrupt a clear surgical field and hinder visualization when you need it most. HEMO-SEAL™ Needle-Suture Technology was designed with this in mind – it’s a needle-suture combination that allows a better fit of the suture in the needle hole, resulting in reduced needle hole bleeding.

The PROLENE® you trust – but better

Same handling. Reduced leakage. Better visualization.

HEMO-SEAL Technology uses the same PROLENE® suture you trust, but offers reduced needle hole leakage. In a pre-clinical model, HEMO-SEAL Technology was shown to reduce needle hole leakage rate by 67% compared to the standard PROLENE Polypropylene Suture; and by 59% compared to GORE-TEX® ePTFE Nonabsorbable Monofilament Suture.588,† Also available with some EVERPOINT™ cardiovascular needles.

How HEMO-SEAL™ Technology works

Tapered suture. Nearly 1-to-1 needle-to-suture ratio.

HEMO-SEAL Technology narrows the PROLENE suture at the needle attachment site, which results in the remainder of the suture having a reduced needle-to-suture ratio. This enhanced ratio allows the bulk of the suture to adequately fill the needle hole, leading to a significant reduction in needle hole bleeding.
