I have been using Riverpoint suture materials since their release at the 2014 AVA Conference. I have been impressed with the “performance” every time compared to the suture materials I have used previously. I am particularly impressed with the lack of tissue drag on the Monofilament Vilet suture material and the knot tying quality of the PDO/PDM and Polypropylene suture materials. The ability to order the suture materials in boxes of 12 as well as in a cassette configuration, makes good economical sense for cash flow, as well as being competitively priced with exclusivity to Provet.

We have been very happy with the Riverpoint VisiPro™ sutures. They are easy to see on brown horses and work really well for tarsorrhaphies in terms of visibility.
We do a lot of arthroscopies and the Riverpoint VisiPro™ makes it much easier for us to see the sutures at bandage changes.
Overall, Riverpoint VisiPro™ sutures save time for us as they are easily visible and there is less chance of missing sutures at removal time.
