MONOPRONE
Monofilament Poliglecaprone 25

  • Superior pliability for easy handling and tying
  • Balanced absorption & progressive loss of tensile strength
  • Minimized risk of suture line infection
  • Minimal Damage, better cosmesis
  • High tensile strength, twice that of chromic catgut
  • PRIMIPASS coated needles

MONOPRONE
Monoprone – Poliglecaprone 25 suture is monofilament synthetic absorbable surgical suture prepared from a copolymer of glycolide and caprolactone. It is slippery, making it easier to pass than a braided suture. Poliglecaprone 25 suture is absorbed by hydrolysis. Poliglecaprone is available as Violet and Undyed.
