MONOCRYL (poliglecaprone 25) suture is a monofilament synthetic absorbable surgical suture prepared from a copolymer of glycolide and epsilon-caprolactone.
MONOCRYL sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, but not for use in cardiovascular or neurological tissues, microsurgery or ophthalmic surgery.
- Reverse Cutting Needle
- Less tissue reaction than chromic gut, less tissue drag, and no fraying
- Frequent uses bladder, gastro-intestinal, subcuticular closure, reproductive tract, fascia closure/linea alba (young, healthy, fast healing animals)
- Loss of 60-70% tensile strength after 1 week
- Complete mass absorption in 91-119 days
