DemeCAPRONE (Poliglecaprone 25) is a synthetic monofilament absorbable suture composed of Poly (glycolic-co-caprolactone) copolymer (PGCL) and is supplied in violet colour.
DemeCAPRONE (POLIGLECAPRONE 25) synthetic absorbable sutures elicit a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues, which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue.
Progressive loss of tensile strength and eventual absorption of DemeCAPRONE (POLIGLECAPRONE 25) synthetic absorbable sutures occurs by means of hydrolysis. Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength followed by a loss of mass. Absorption is essentially complete in approximately 90 to 120 days.
