Indications

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

Polypropylene Suture is characterized by having high tensile strength, total chemical inertia, as well as great mystical compatibility. Polypropylene suture is a non-absorbable surgical suture with minimal tissue reaction and optimal tissue slip.

The Suture having a homogeneous and extremely smooth surface minimizes trauma by passing through tissues and the dragging of microorganisms. All these characteristics make it a suture material that can be used advantageously in all types of surgical interventions, from Skin Closure to Cardiovascular or Digestive.

  • Smooth Surface results minimal tissue trauma
  • Being a monofilament with smooth surface never support bacteria growth followed by capilary action
  • Uniform elasticity supports small movements results cosmetic effect
  • Ultra smooth surface results negligible pain
  • Blue pigmentation enhances visibility
  • The suture is dyed blue color makes it clearly visible in the operative field.
  • Polypropylene (transparent or pigmented) are sterile non-absorbable surgical sutures composed of an isotactic crystalline stereoisomer of polypropylene, a linear synthetic polyolefin.
  • Polypropylene surgical sutures are indicated for use in approximation soft tissue ligation in general, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic and neurological procedures.
  • Cardiovascular surgeons have relied on Polypropylene Sutures for more than 40 years and have used them on more than 100 million people worldwide.
