Covidien SMM5033 - Suture Maxon Mono Gr P12 4-0 18" 36/BX
Covidien SMM5033 Maxon Monofilament Synthetic Absorbable Suture, Premium Reverse Cutting, Size 4-0, Green, 18" Length, Needle P-12, 3/8 Circle (Pack of 36)
Maxon synthetic absorbable sutures are prepared from polyglyconate, a copolymer of glycolic acid and trimethylene carbonate.
Maxon reverse cutting needles feature tri-coined, reverse cutting edges for use in dense connective tissue and skin. The cutting edge is on the convex surface of the needle arc, facilitating needle passage while minimizing tissue cut-through. Premium reverse cutting needles are made exclusively of Surgalloy material for added strength and ductility.

Strength and Security for Extended Wound Healing
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.
The advanced extrusion process of the molecule of polyglyconate gives the suture:
- Excellent in-vivo strength retention
- Excellent knot tying security
- Minimal memory
The Strength and Flexibility You Require
Maxon Is Stronger Than The Competition During The Critical Wound Healing Period
General soft tissue approximation including fascia closure, Orthopedic surgery, Pediatric Cardiovascular surgery and patients with compromised wound healing.
Maxon and Maxon CV 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. Maxon and Maxon CV synthetic absorbable sutures are not indicated for use in adult cardiovascular tissue, ophthalmic surgery, microsurgery and neural tissues.
The use of this suture is contraindicated in patients with known sensitivities or allergies to its components. This suture, being absorbable, should not be used where extended approximation of tissue is required or for fixation of permanent cardiovascular prostheses or synthetic grafts.
