What Is a Monocryl Suture?

Monocryl sutures, which may also be referred to as poliglecaprone, are a specific kind of medical suture used for soft tissue repairs. They are ideal for closing areas of skin after wounds, injuries, or operations, but are not suitable for other procedures like cardiovascular or neurological procedures.

The Monocryl brand is owned and operated by the Ethicon company, so all Monocryl sutures are made by Ethicon. They are an example of absorbable or dissolvable sutures, which means that they are able to dissolve naturally in the body on their own and are absorbed by the body as they degrade, without any need for manual removal.

There are a lot of advantages associated with Monocryl sutures. For example, they have very high tensile strength and good levels of elasticity to cope with swelling without snapping or breaking. They're also good for cosmetic purposes, with low levels of scarring and minimal tissue reactions.

How Does a Monocryl Suture Work?

The way in which Monocryl sutures work is relatively simple and similar to other kinds of stitches and sutures. First, a surgeon will need to select an appropriate size of Monocryl suture to suit the patient they’re working on. Once the size has been selected, the Monocryl suture can be attached to a suitable surgical needle and used to stitch the surgical site or wound together. Surgeons may use various stitching methods with Monocryl sutures, and since these sutures are absorbable, they can be left in the body to dissolve of their own accord.

Monocryl Suture Sizes 

There are various sizes of Monocryl sutures, and they are measured using the standard USP (United States Pharmacopeia) system. Some of the most common sizes for Monocryl sutures are 4-0, 3-0, and 2-0, but other options are available.

Monocryl Suture Types

There are many different types of medical sutures, and Monocryl sutures are one of those specific types. They cannot be divided into any further subtypes or categories, due to their specific design and materials. However, there are different sizes of Monocryl sutures to choose from, as well as many other forms of surgical sutures like Vicryl and Mersilene.

Monocryl Suture Uses

There are various uses of Monocryl sutures, and the main purpose of these sutures, just like other sutures and stitches, is to stitch wounds and surgical sites together to allow the body to heal with minimal risks of blood loss and infection. In general, Monocryl sutures are most commonly used for soft tissue wounds and skin sutures.
