The effects of ethylene oxide and gas-plasma sterilization on failure strength and failure mode of pre-tied monofilament ligature loops

, : The effects of ethylene oxide and gas-plasma sterilization on failure strength and failure mode of pre-tied monofilament ligature loops. Veterinary Surgery 31(3): 281-284

Objective: To evaluate the effects of ethylene oxide and gas-plasma sterilization on the failure strength and failure mode of pre-tied monofilament ligature loops. Study Design: A randomized block design was used by blocking for suture (size 1 polyglyconate, size 2 polydioxanone) and sterilization technique (control, ethylene oxide, gas plasma). Sample Population: 20 replicates of each suture-sterilization technique combination.
