Shalaby W Shalaby, Dennis D Jamiolkowski: Isomorphic copolyoxalates and sutures thereof. Ethicon, Wayne R Eberhardt, February 27, 1979: US04141087 (213 worldwide citation)

Synthetic absorbable sutures are prepared from copolyoxalate polymers having isomorphic sequences. The polymers are derived from mixtures of cyclic and linear diols, each having the same carbon chain length of 6 or 8 atoms. The cyclic diol may be aliphatic or aromatic. The diols are polymerized with ...

Shalaby W Shalaby, Dennis D Jamiolkowski: Poly(alkylene oxalate) absorbable coating for sutures. Ethicon, Wayne R Eberhardt, August 8, 1978: US04105034 (180 worldwide citation)

The tie-down properties of multifilament surgical sutures are improved by coating the suture with an absorbable composition comprising a poly(alkylene oxalate) wherein the alkylene is a C.sub.6 or a mixture of C.sub.4 to C.sub.12 alkylene moieties. Braided sutures coated with from about 1 to 15 perc ...

Shalaby W Shalaby, Dennis D Jamiolkowski: Synthetic absorbable surgical devices of poly(alkylene oxalates). Ethicon, Wayne R Eberhardt, June 3, 1980: US04205399 (170 worldwide citation)

Synthetic filaments composed of homopolymers and copolymers of poly(alkylene oxalates) are absorbable in animal tissue with minimal adverse tissue reaction. Polymers prepared by reacting a dialkyl oxalate with an alkylene diol are melt spun and drawn to obtain oriented fibers having good tensile pro ...
