Velosorb™ Fast sutures are composed of absorbable synthetic polyester comprised of glycolide and lactide (derived from glycolic and lactic acids).
This braided absorbable suture offers:
Velosorb™ Fast sutures are indicated for use in soft tissue approximation of the skin and mucosa, when only 7-10 days of wound support is required. Application for episiotomy repair, where fast absorption is preferred, may be beneficial for patient comfort and dyspareunia. However, it is not indicated for use in ligation, opthalmic, cardiovascular, or neurological procedures.
Caprosyn™ synthetic absorbable suture’s quick absorption (56 days), durable polymer material and monofilament construction provide smooth passage through tissue, better approximation or ligation, and minimized potentiation of infection. Patients can experience less discomfort during healing, less wound complications and a faster recovery.
The advanced extrusion process of the molecule of Polygytone™ 6211 gives the suture:
Caprosyn™ sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, but not for use in cardiovascular or neurological surgery, microsurgery, or ophthalmic surgery.
Maxon™ suture is designed with unique polymer chemistry composed of polyglyconate, a copolymer of glycolic acid — to make it strong. And trimethylene carbonate to help delay the absorption period.1,2
Maxon™ synthetic absorbable sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in pediatric cardiovascular tissue, where growth is expected to occur, and in peripheral vascular surgery. They are not indicated for use in adult cardiovascular tissue, ophthalmic surgery, microsurgery, and neural tissues.
Our absorbable sutures provide strength retention and absorption profiles to meet your surgical specialty and tissue healing requirements.
