BIOSYN™ MONOFILAMENT ABSORBABLE SUTURES
Biosyn™ synthetic absorbable sutures are prepared from Gylcomer™ 631, a synthetic polyester composed of glycolide (60%), dioxanone (14%), and trimethylene carbonate (26%). These sutures are colored violet to increase visibility and are also available undyed.
The advanced extrusion process of the molecule of Gylcomer™ 631 gives the suture:
- Excellent initial strength
- Excellent in-vivo strength over the critical wound healing period
- Excellent knot security
- Minimal memory for handling ease
Biosyn™ sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, but not for use in cardiovascular or neurological surgery.
