Ultra Fine 10-0 Nylon Sutures

One of the key components to the high success rate of Dr. Rosenfeld’s tubal ligation reversal procedures is the ultra fine 10-0 nylon suture he selects. Finer than a strand of hair and generally reserved for cardiovascular procedures and other delicate procedures, the ultra fine sutures reduce the risk of adhesions hindering healing and conception. The use of the ultra fine sutures has dramatically reduced the number of ectopic pregnancies resulting from tubal reversals.

Use of Special Sutures Increases Success of Tubal Reversal Procedures

While the ultra fine 10-0 nylon sutures require special training and more time to place, Dr. Rosenfeld believes that they are essential in promoting a rapid recovery with fewer complications and better overall results.
