Custom Surgical Pledget Design and Manufacturing
One of ATEX Technologies’ newest offerings, pledgets play a supporting role in wound management along with surgical sutures and suture assemblies. These non-woven felt pads act as tissue supports, protecting underlying tissue from the tension of the suture because it tends to distribute the tension of the suture across its surface. In addition, the pledget itself allows for optimal tightening of the suture. Pledgets at ATEX can be fully customized and can be manufactured from our proprietary PET and PTFE fibers intended specifically for use in medical applications.
