Ethicon Y427H - Suture Monocryl Mono Ud PS2 3-0 27" 36/BX

MONOCRYL (poliglecaprone 25) Suture

MONOCRYL Sutures is a monofilament synthetic absorbable surgical suture prepared from a copolymer of glycolide and epsilon-caprolactone.MONOCRYL Sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation where an absorbable material is indicated.These sutures (dyed and undyed), being absorbable, should not be used where extended approximation of tissues under stress is required. Monocryl UNDYED must not be used for abdominal closure or to close fascial tissue.


For smooth passage through tissue.


For minimal tissue reaction.


By hydrolysis. Absorption is essentially complete between 90 and 120 days.

Monocryl suture, a new ultra-pliable absorbable monofilament suture.

Synthetic absorbable sutures are available as braided constructions or as monofilaments. Braided absorbable sutures are made either from 90:10 poly(glycolide-co-L(-)-lactide).

There are, however, some concerns with braided sutures that relate to tissue drag and the trauma this may cause, as well as the possible potentiation of infection through the interstices of the braid structure. Absorbable monofilaments, such as the monofilament sutures derived from p-dioxanone homopolymer (PDS II, an Ethicon, Inc. product), or a copolymer of trimethylene carbonate and glycolide (Maxon, a Davis and Geck product), eliminate many of these concerns, but generally monofilaments do not handle as well as braids.

This paper describes the research leading to the introduction of Monocryl (poliglecaprone 25) monofilament sutures, based on segmented block copolymers of epsilon-caprolactone and glycolide. Monocryl sutures will be shown to display excellent handling properties, minimal resistance during passage through tissue and excellent tensile properties. These sutures provide an in vivo breaking strength retention of approximately 20-30% after 2 weeks, considered by many to be the critical wound healing period. Absorption data on these sutures are presented; absorption is complete between the 91st and 119th days of implantation, with slight or minimal tissue reaction.
