Description

MONOSWIFT®

MONOSWIFT®  Monofilament Poly(glycolide-co-caprolactone) 25 (PGCL) Synthetic Absorbable Suture

DESCRIPTION

Monoswift® is a synthetic absorbable monofilament surgical suture, composed of poly(glycolide-co-caprolactone) (PGCL). PGCL synthetic absorbable monofilament sutures are available dyed with FD&C violet #2 or undyed (natural). PGCL synthetic absorbable monofilament suture meets all requirements established by the United States Pharmacopoeia (U.S.P.), except for diameter.

CHARACTERISTICS

•  Excellent holding strength

•  Smooth tissue passage; excellent handling, exceptional  suppleness, and good knot security

•  Non-wicking material helps prevent bacterial migration along the suture line

INDICATIONS

Monoswift® synthetic absorbable monofilament sutures are indicated for use in soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, but not for use in cardiovascular or neurological surgery, microsurgery, or ophthalmic surgery.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

These sutures, being absorbable, are not to be used where extended approximation of tissue is required.  The use of this suture may be inappropriate in elderly, malnourished, and debilitated patients, or any patients suffering from conditions that may delay wound healing.  Not for use in cardiovascular or neurological surgery, microsurgery, or ophthalmic surgery.  See Instructions for Use for adverse reactions.

TENSILE STRENGTH

Implantation studies in animals indicate that PGCL suture retains approximately 70% of its original tensile strength at 7 days post implantation, approximately 40% of its original tensile strength at 14 days, and approximately 12% at 21 days post implantation.

ABSORPTION

Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength without appreciable loss of mass. Absorption of Monoswift® is essentially complete between 91 and 120 days.

COLOR(s)

Violet or Undyed

PACKAGING

Monoswift® is available in USP sizes 6-0 through 2 (metric sizes 0.7-5). Monoswift® is available with needles in one dozen boxes.
