4-0 Poliglecaprone Sutures 19mm Reverse Cutting 3/8 Circle needle
Manufactured especially for Ostralos, these exceptional sutures are highly popular with top New Zealand surgeons.
Petcryl Mono suture is a monofilament synthetic absorbably surgical suture. It is a co-polymer of glycolide and caprolactone.
Petcryl Mono has low tissue reactivity and maintains 50-60% in-vivo tensile strength at 7 days and 20-30% at 14 days. Total absorption in tissues takes around 90-120 days. Being monofilament, the suture is smooth, making it easier to pass through tissues compared to a braided suture. It has a consistency close to nylon suture material.
This suture is generally used for soft-tissue approximation, subcuticular dermis closure of the face, and as ligature. The suture is absorbed by simple hydrolysis and is known for reliable absorption.
Very high tensile strength initially
Used for soft-tissue approximation and ligation
Excellent knot security and high pliability
Very low incidence of infection and trauma
Smooth tissue passage as it is monofilament
High in-vivo strength retention
Petcryl Mono allows wounds to be kept exceptionally clean, without build-up of plaque and bacteria. It is an ideal suture for implant surgery.
Note: the suture ends can feel sharp for patients, so the knots are best placed away from the tongue.
