monofilament, short-term absorbable
The two material components polyglycolic
acid and ɛ – caprolactone are copolymerised
in a certain ratio to make GLYCOLON™.
TYPES OF PACKAGING:
• precut length
USP 6-0 to 1 (0.7-4 metric)
undyed or violet
[poly (glycolic acid-co-ɛ-caprolactone)]
Metabolization of the polymer suture within the tissue occurs by the uptake of water, thus reversing the synthesis.
Tissue reaction is minimal because of the completely safe intermediary products and the monofilament structure of thread.
GLYCOLON™ has a smooth surface providing good handling properties and very good passage through tissue.
Tissue traumatization is minimal and there is no undesirable wick effect due to the monofilament structure of GLYCOLON™.
It is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, but not for use in cardiovascular or
neurological tissues, microsurgery or ophthalmic surgery.
GLYCOLONTM is supplied undyed or violet.
- very good passage through tissue
- optimum tissue compatibility
- high tensile strength
- reliable knot security
