Ti-Cron polyester sutures are non-absorbable, sterile surgical sutures composed of polyethylene terephthalate. These braided sutures are available uncoated or coated uniformly with silicone to increase surface lubricity, enhancing handling characteristics, ease of passage through tissue, and knot run-down properties. Ti-Cron sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic and neural tissue.
- Maximum security in approximation of tissues under stress conditions
- Permanent support (tensile strength is retained indefinitely)
- Maximum security with prosthetic implants

Frequently Asked Questions
Questions: Are Ti-Cron sutures different from Surgidac sutures?
Answer:Yes, Ti-Cron and Surgidac sutures are both polyester sutures. However, Ti-Cron sutures are coated with Silicone while Surgidac sutures are not. It is this Silicone coating that gives Ti-Cron its supple feel.
Questions: I used to get Surgidac sutures but Ti-Cron sutures have shown up in its place. Why?
Answer: To maximize our suture offering to our customers, we have undergone an extensive suture integration. Surgidac has been integrated to Ti-Cron suture because of the clinical advantages that the Ti-Cron product offers.
Questions: Are Surgidac sutures still available?
Answer:Uncoated Surgidac sutures are still available for use in ophthalmic surgery.
