Mono - Poliglecaprone 25 Sutures

Polyglycolide-poly(e-caprolactone) copolymer (PGCL) Sutures

Mono - Poliglecaprone 25 Sutures Mono [Poliglecaprone 25] is a monofilament Synthetic Absorbable Suture which is a copolymer of glycolide and caprolactone, available in undyed and violet colour. It has low tissue reactivity and maintains 50 to 60% in-vivo tensile strength at 7 days and 20 to 30% at 14 days. Total absorption in tissues takes around 90 to 120 days. Being monofilament, the suture is smooth, making it easier to pass through the tissues as compared to braided suture. It has a consistency close to nylon suture material. The suture is notused in areas of high tension. This suture is generally used for soft-tissue approximation, subcuticular dermis closures of the face and as ligature. The suture is absorbed in tissues by simple hydrolysis and known for its reliable absorption.

  • Synthetic - minimal tissue reaction
  • Monofilament - a unique monofilament suture with high knot security
    - Unprecedented smoothness minimises tissue drag and sawing
    - Non capillarity minimises the risk of infection

Dscription :

PGCL is fast absorbable synthetic monofilament suture material bulk composed of  Polyglycolide-poly(e-caprolactone) copolymer (PGCL). It is available undyed (golden clear) and dyed(violet) in color. PGCL is intended for assembly of sterile surgical  sutures with and   without needles.

  • Wound support - Approximately 20 days
    - Retention of 50% knot tensile strength after 14 days
    - Complete mass absorption in 60 to 90 days
  • Absorption - Mass absorption is completed between 90 and 120 days
  • Unprecedented pliability - easy to handle and tie

PGCL is a mid-term absorbable synthetic monofilament suture made of glyconate, available in undyed color for the closure of superficial wounds and in violet color for the rest of indications. PGCL offers excellent handling properties and high knot security. PGCL is recommended for all soft tissue approximations.

These sutures comply with the requirements of U.S. Pharmacopoeia (U.S.P.) and The European Pharmacopoeia (PhEUR) except for a slight oversize in diameter.

Distinctive Characteristics of  PGCL Sutures:

·         Very low incidence of infection and trauma

·         Smooth tissue passage

·         Reliable absorption

.      High in vivo strength retention

       ·         - Superior initial knot tensile strength
     - Ideal degradation profile for soft tissues
     - Excellent knot security

  • A unique monofilament suture with high knot security
  • Unprecedented smoothness minimises tissue drag and sawing*
  • Minimal tissue reaction

·         Indications - Indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation where an absorbable material is indicated.

- Gastrointestinal surgery
- Gynaecology / obstetrics
- Urology
- Plastic and reconstructive surgery
- Skin closure (intra, sub, skin)
