The V-Loc™ wound closure device is a revolutionary technology that eliminates the need to tie knots, so you can close incisions up to 50% faster without compromising strength and security.1,2
Its dual-angle barbs allow suture to pass smoothly through tissue in one direction — but prevent it from slipping back through soft tissue.
The barbs hold wound surfaces together and distribute tension along the entire length of the suture, without needing knots to secure the wound.
Designed for secure, fast, and effective3,4 incision closure for your patients.
