The antibacterial component of all Plus Sutures — IRGACARE® MP —represents the purest form of triclosan, shown to inhibit colonization on the device in vitro for seven days or more, while providing a favorable safety profile spanning over 40 years.

The Who, and ACS & SIS suggests the use of triclosan-coated sutures. The WHO suggests use these types of sutures in their Global Guidelines for the Prevention of Surgical Site Infections, and the ACS and SIS recommend use in their updated Surgical Site Infection Guidelines. These updated guidelines support our decade-long commitment to helping surgeons and their institutions address the overwhelming burden of healthcare associated infections.
