Monomid®

Nylon Monofilament Non-Absorbable Suture

DESCRIPTION

Monomid® is a non-absorbable, sterile surgical suture composed of the long-chain aliphatic polymers Nylon type 6 or Nylon type 6/6. Monofilament Nylon suture may be either dyed black (logwood), dyed blue (FD&C Blue No.2) or white (undyed).

CHARACTERISTICS

Nylon exhibits:

•  Uniform diameter of the suture

•  Maximum flexibility of the strand

•  Excellent and consistent knot security

•  Minimal memory

TENSILE STRENGTH

As with any nylon suture, though not absorbed, progressive hydrolysis of the suture in vivo may result in gradual loss of tensile strength over time. Nylon suture should not be used where permanent retention of tensile strength is required.

COLOR(s)

Black, Blue or Undyed

PACKAGING

Monomid® is available in various USP sizes.
