Overview for CP Medical L316 MONOSWIFT® Monofilament PCGL Absorbable Sutures with Taper Point Needles, 1/2 Circle, 12 per Box

The CP Medical MONOSWIFT® Monofilament PCGL Absorbable Sutures with Taper Point Needles, 1/2 Circle, are synthetic surgical monofilament sutures indicated for use in soft tissue approximation and/or ligation.

Monoswift® Sutures are composed of polyglycolide-co-caprolactone or PCGL. These synthetic and absorbable sutures are characterized by excellent holding strength and suppleness, good knot security, and smooth tissue passage. Non-wicking material ensures that bacteria does not migrate along the suture line. PGCL synthetic absorbable monofilament sutures meet the requirements set by the United States Pharmacopoeia (U.S.P.) except for diameter. CP Medical Monoswift® sutures are equivalent to Ethicon® MONOCRYL®, Look® MONODERM®, Sharpoint® MONODERM® and Covidien® BIOSYN®.

Monoswift® absorption is essentially complete between 91 and 120 days. Being absorbable, it is advisable not to use this suture in cardiovascular or neurological surgery, microsurgery, or ophthalmic surgery.  It may also be inappropriate to be used in elderly, malnourished, and debilitated patients, or any patient suffering from conditions that delay wound healing.  Monoswift® sutures are available dyed with FD&C violet #2 in various suture sizes. Size 0 is best used for closure of the fascia layer in abdominal surgery, or for knee, hip and back surgery. Sizes 2-0 and 3-0 is best for closure of muscle layers or bowel repair, while 4-0 and 5-0 are great for larger vessel repair.

These sutures feature taper point needles, which have a blunt point and no cutting edge. It is designed to separate tissue fibres rather than cutting them. These needles are used for closing soft tissue such as gastrointestinal, vascular, fascia, and other soft tissue found below the skin’s surface. Available in 12 per box. Proudly made in the USA.
