Suture, Precision Point Reverse Cutting, Size 4-0, 18", Undyed Monofilament, Needle P-3, 3/8 Circle
Secure skin closure is an integral step of nearly every surgical procedure. If the closure device does not provide the strength and support required by the skin tissue, the wound edges may separate, providing a potential pathway for bacterial contamination, which can lead to infection and suboptimal cosmesis.
To create an environment that facilitates healing of the skin tissue, sutures should:
Provide the support necessary to maintain wound-edge approximation during the critical healing period (5-7 days after surgery)
Pass smoothly through fascia to minimize tissue trauma
MONOCRYL Plus Sutures are ideal for subcuticular skin closure.
High initial breaking strength to maintain wound approximation during the critical first few days of skin healing
Shown in vitro to kill bacteria and inhibit bacterial colonization of the suture
Monofilament design and polymer properties minimize drag force and elicit only a slight tissue reaction during absorption
