The V-Loc wound closure device is a revolutionary barbing technology that closes wounds securely without the need to tie knots. V-Loc devices utilize a dual-angle-cut which creates a superior anchoring barb while optimizing the strands integrity. This guide showcases the available sizes with all applicable needles.
The V-Loc Device incorporates an enabling technology that facilitates a smooth closing experience by closing incisions up to 50% faster without compromising strength or security.
|7 days, 80%; 14 days, 75%; 21 days, 65%
|Soft tissue approximation where support is required consistent with the absorption profile
|Copolymer of glycolic acid and trimethylene carbonate
|V-Loc 90 and V-Loc 180 absorbable wound closure devices are indicated for soft tissue approximation where use of an absorbable suture is appropriate.
The V-Loc device provides greater strength and security compared to the Stratafix Spiral barbing technology. The unique dual angle cut and barbing pattern of the V-Loc device creates the optimal barbing technology, which is backed by four years of clinical experience and supported by level one evidence.
For every two knots in a conventional suture, V-Loc device offers 1,220 fixation points.
The transition from an open to laparoscopic approach has introduced the difficulty of laparoscopic suturing. When considerations for blood loss and hemostasis are added, the need for faster, more secure suture lines become readily apparent.
In a prospective study, when compared to traditional suture, V-Loc device provides:
This step-by-step guide shows how the V-Loc device can be used for secure dermal wound closure with little or no adjustment to the surgeons technique.
