Reduce closure time by eliminating suture knot tying.
Quill Barbed Suture?
Quill® barbed suture is a novel wound closure device that eliminates the need to tie suture knots to secure the closure during soft tissue approximation.
The barbs hold wound edges together while distributing forces along the entire length of the suture eliminating high tension points.
How the barbs work
Retractable barbs allow the suture to pass smoothly through tissue in one direction — and then anchor into the tissue for secure fixation.
Improve your practice efficiency and profitability.
by up to 40%.
By eliminating knot tying, you can save valuable time and increase patient volume.
Once the Quill barbs engage the tissue, they maintain tension on the wound automatically.
Quill is fully absorbable so the patient does not need to return for suture removal.
“Quill is my “go-to” suture for any linear closure whether it be on the face, trunk, or extremities. My closures are quicker and cheaper with Quill sutures. Cosmetic outcomes are excellent.”

“Quill saves time, especially on large closures and in elderly patients with friable skin. It has been a game changer for repair of these defect.”

“I can now close wounds that would normally require a skin graft by using Quill PDO on the deep subcutaneous layer to reduce tension followed by Quill Monoderm subcuticularly.”
