Ethicon ETHIBOND is a multifilament braided suture for easy handling and secure knot tying. ETHIBOND is coated with polybutilate for smooth tie down and easy passage through tissue. The coating which acts as a lubricant to mechanically improve the physical properties of the uncoated suture by improving handling qualities as contrasted to the braided, uncoated fiber. The suture is synthetic for minimal tissue reaction.
