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
- Reliable absorption
- 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.
