Smooth monofilament absorbable suture for seamless subcuticular closure with Monoglyde – monofilament poliglecaprone 25 UNDYED

FEATURES OF MONOGLYDE

  • A synthetic, monofilament absorbable suture
  • Minimal, less reactive scar with excellent cosmesis
  • Significant initial tensile strength
  • Predictable absorption
  • Due to its smooth texture, the suture glides through the tissue easily
  • Exceptional pliability, soft and supple
  • Trupass coated needle for easy penetration and extended smooth-ness

Monoglyde is ideal approximation material for subcuticular closure. It has low tissue reactivity and maintains 50% – 60% in-vivo tensile strength at 7 days and 20% – 30% at 2 weeks. It provides wound support of 3 – 4 weeks, a good enough time period for skin healing. The total absorption in tissues takes around 90 – 120 days.

APPLICATIONS

  • Used for subcuticular repair and general soft-tissue approximation
  • Bowel anastomoses
  • Closure of the peritoneum
  • Closure of uterus and vaginal cuff
  • Not recommended for use in cardiovascular or neurological tissues, microsurgery or ophthalmic surgery
  • Since this is an absorbable suture, it should not be used for extended approximation of tissue (fascia)
