Wound Closure Overview

Beyond Thread… the science of a great suture

Ethicon designs sutures for the needs of surgery - overseeing development from monomer, to polymer, to fiber, to the thread our customers use and trust every day.

Innovative technology that can be used to achieve healing

Every type of tissue, whether skin, fascia, or organ has its own specialized function and needs. The Ethicon Wound Closure Portfolio lets surgeons match the specific wound healing needs of each tissue type to the appropriate closure device, giving surgeons and patients the right solutions for the right procedures. While there are differences in tissue healing profiles and types of wound closure devices, for optimal patient outcomes, every Ethicon Wound Closure Device:
