Surgical Suture Material




Polydioxanone: Is indicated on the approximation of all tissue types, including the use in pediatrics Cardiovascular tissue where growth expected to be present and in ophthalmic surgery, Digestive Surgery, Plastic Surgery, Plastic / Reconstructive, Bond, General Surgery and cuticle.


It is not indicated in adult cardiovascular tissue, microsurgery, or neural tissue. As an ABSORBABLE, it suture should not be used when be necessary to support the tissues for prolonged periods.


Polyglycolic acid (PGA): Is a synthetic suture, ABSORBABLE, Sterile, Multifilament, which meets all requirements established by the USP.


Is degraded by chemical hydrolysis, which is absorbed and metabolized by the human body. The absorption process is followed by a mass loss and fully reabsorbed within 90 days.


Is coated with polycaprolactone and calcium Stearate. Available in Violet color and it is sterilized by ethylene oxide.


The suture of Polyglycolic acid (PGA), synthetic, ABSORBABLE, Sterile, Multifilament, is indicated in General Surgery, Plastic Surgery, Ophthalmic Surgery, Gynecology-Obstetrics, Episiotomy, Urology, Orthopedics, Gastroenterology, General Closing, Bondage, Pediatrics and cuticles.




As being a synthetic suture should not be used when be necessary to support tissues for prolonged periods.



  • These sutures are best for use in Bondage and soft tissue approximation.
  • Do not be applied in ophthalmic, cardiovascular and neurological tissues.
  • Absorption by hydrolysis between 56 and 70 days.
  • Color: Purple.
  • Diameter: USP from 5 / 0 to 2.


Polyglecaprone: Is a synthetic suture, ABSORBABLE, sterile, monofilament made of polymer e-Caprolactone and polymer Glycolide (PGCL), meets the requirements of the USP except the diameter which is ruled by the British Pharmacopoeia. Its degradation is hydrolysis, which makes the polymer be converted into adipic acid, which is then absorbed and metabolized by the body.


It is available in purple and colorless. The Polyglecaprone lost the initial resistance to tension at 28 days after implantation. The absorption is essentially complete between 90 and 120 days. The product is sterilized by Ethylene Oxide


Polyglecaprone sutures: Are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and / or short tissue recovery, Gastric, Gynecology and Obstetrics, Plastic, Urology and other uses which are suitable for ABSORBABLE SUTURES.


The use of this suture is contraindicated in patients with known sensitivity or allergy to its components.


As a synthetic suture should not be used on tissues needing support for prolonged periods.






Nylon monofilament, non-absorbable suture of synthetic material that meets the USP requirements.


Because of its high tension resistance and elongation control, ensures the tissue edges approach for scar formation, due to its soft passage through tissue and for all its physical and physiological properties and causing minimal tissue reaction, the healing is perfect. It is available in black. The product is sterilized by Ethylene Oxide.


Nylon Monofilament is indicated on Cardiovascular Surgery, General Surgery, Plastic Surgery, Microsurgery, Thoracic Surgery, Ophthalmology, Gastrointestinal, Orthopedics, Urology, General Close, cuticles, skin closure and retention.


No contraindications have been reported.




The Polypropylene, Non-ABSORBABLE suture, monofilament, whose main component is the isobathic crystalline stereoisomer of polypropylene, a synthetic linear polyolefin. The polypropylene suture triggers a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues, followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. It is not absorbed, nor subject to degradation or resistance loss, caused by the action of tissue enzymes. It is available in blue. Sterilized by Ethylene Oxide.


The polypropylene suture is indicated for Cardiovascular, General Close, and Herniorrhaphy, Plastic / Reconstructive Surgery, Urology and Pediatrics.
