This braided PTFE-impregnated polyester thread is distinguished by its strength, its excellent knotting and the easy gliding through tissue.
This thread is supplemented by special silicon-coated needles. They are smooth when sewing and guarantee light reflection protection. Their special reinforced steel enables you to work without bending or breaking. Cardioflon is used in classical valve replacement, when implanting Carpentier rings as well as in other reconstructive interventions.
