Polyamide Suture (The Final Touch)

Polyamide Suture is a nylon surgical suture is a nonabsorbable suture, sterile surgical monofilament suture composed of the long-chain aliphatic polymers Nylon 6 and Nylon 6,6. UNILON Monofilament Polyamide Sutures are dyed black or green to enhance visibility in tissue.

Monofilament Polyamide suture is a non-absorbable, sterile, monofilament surgical suture that is made of a long chain aliphatic polymer, also known as nylon 6 or nylon 6.6.

  • Polyamide suture is stained in indigo or black to increase its visibility in the tissue. Polyamide is also available in colorless. It meets all the requirements for non-absorbable sutures of the American and European Pharmacopoeia.
  • In general, Polyamide suture is used to cover and join soft tissues in cardiovascular, ophthalmological or neurological surgical applications.
  • Polyamide sutures are manufactured with or without a stainless steel needle, ranging between USP 10/0 – USP 2, and lengths between 10cm and 150cm.
  • Thanks to its good sliding through the tissues and its high tensile strength, it is especially suitable for microsurgery where the points must be very delicate.
  • Available Sizes – 2 to 6-0

Indications of Polyamide Suture

Monofilament Polyamide Suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic and neurological procedures.

  • The best material for skin approximation
  • Being a monofilament with smooth surface never support bacterial growth followed by capillary action
  • Uniform elasticity supports small movements results in cosmetic effect
  • Ultra-smooth surface results in negligible pain
  • Best Suture for Skin Closure
  • Excellent thread slip through tissues
  • Very high linear and knot tensile strength, with fine dimensions
  • Very simple manipulation
  • Casualty stitching
  • Excellent and constant knot strength
  • Hard Tissues approximation
  • General Surgeons
  • Gynecologists
  • Orthopedics
  • Skin Closure
  • Casualty stitching
