Polypropylene Monofilament Sutures

International quality polypropylene monofilament sutures for the most delicate speciality procedures.

Virtues
The strong, smooth, pliable SMB polypropylene suture provides superior handling, accurate knot placement and knot security with less throws. SMB Polypropylene a Versatile Monofilament, the suture of choice
  • Reasonable Elasticity
  • High degree of smoothness
  • Highly visible in the wound
  • Passes through tissue easily
  • Increased suppleness and pliability
  • Polypropylene Monofilament SuturesCompletely inert and non-capillary with minimal tissue reaction
  • Uniform diameter with high tensile strength resists breakage
  • Soft, supple material reduces memory and improves handling
  • Strength plus suppleness results in greater knot security with fewer throws, less dispensing memory and improved handling characteristics





Material

Synthetic, Polypropylene Monofilament Suture is a Non-absorbable Surgical Suture. Blue colored for easy identification during Surgery. Polypropylene Monofilament surgical suture meets all the requirements established by the United States Pharmacopoeia (U.S.P.) for diameter, knot pull strength and needle detachment strength.

SMB Polypropylene Monofilament Sutures packed in straight configuration tyvek pouches for offering minimal memory.

SMB Polypropylene Monofilament Needled Sutures show 50% more knot pull strength and needle detachment strength than limits specified for Class I sutures as per current USP.

Tissue Reaction

Minimal tissue reaction. Does not support any infection. As a monofilament, it has no interstices to support bacterial growth. It is unwetted by blood, unweakened by tissue enzymes, offers prolonged tensile strength even in infected areas.

Applications

Polypropylene Monofilament is indicated for use in Cardiovascular, Ophthalmic, General Closure, Orthopedics, Plastic and Microsurgeries, soft tissue approximation and, or ligation. The suture is highly visible in the wound. The lack of adherence to tissues has facilitated the use of SMB Polypropylene suture as a pull out suture.

Caution

Avoid damage to the surface of suture, care should be taken to avoid damage from handling. Avoid crushing or crimping damage due to application of surgical instruments, such as forceps or needle holders. Adequate knot security requires the accepted surgical techniques of flat, square ties, with additional throws as warranted by surgical circumstances and the experience of the surgeon.

Warnings

As with any foreign body,prolonged contact of this or any other suture with salt solutions, such as those found in the urinary or biliary tracts, may result in calculus formation.Users should be familiar with surgical procedures and techniques involving non absorbable sutures before employing Polypropylene Monofilament surgical suture for wound closure as risk of wound dehiscence may vary with the site of application and the suture material used. Acceptable surgical practice should be followed with respect to drainage and closure of contaminated or infected wounds.

Abstract

Polypropylene Monofilament suture has evolved as the standard suture for the majority of cardiovascular procedures. This suture is known for low tissue drag, easy handling and good strength.

Sterilization

By Ethylene Oxide Gas Sterilization.
