Cascade HealthCare Products carries a variety of Sutures from Ethicon Inc. and Covidien. Ethicon is a global medical device company that has been a leader in surgical sutures for more than 100 years. Covidien is a global health care leader of industry-leading health care and patient care products. At the suggestion of midwife Lynn Arnold, we decided to add the Covidien Caprosyn line of undyed monofilament sutures to our selection. Caprosyn offers fast absorption rate, low tissue reactivity and a long list of features that make it a popular choice for synthetic sutures.

Our selection of sutures includes Undyed Caprosyn, Chromic Gut, Violet Dyed Coated VICRYL, Undyed Coated VICRYL, Coated VICRYL Plus, VICRYL RAPIDE and Liquid Stitches. The sutures are available in a variety of sizes and strengths, and come with your choice of Reverse Cutting Needle, Taper Point Needle or Taper Cut Needle.

We also carry specially designed Suturing Kits complete with all of the instruments and supplies you will need for suturing, packed conveniently in a sturdy nylon organizer bag. At Cascade HealthCare, our selection of sutures and suturing kits is based on 30+ years of experience working with midwives and other health care professionals.
