What is MonoPlus suture?

What is MonoPlus suture?

MonoPlus® is a violet long-term absorbable synthetic monofilament suture made of polydioxanone. MonoPlus® offers good handling combined with great strength. Because of its slow degradation profile, MonoPlus® is ideal for all the indications where an extended wound support of more than 4 weeks is desirable.

What is PDS suture?

Polydioxanone (PDS) or poly-p-dioxanone is a slowly absorbable monofilament suture composed of the polyester, poly (p-dioxanone). This is a monofilament with greater strength than monofilament nylon and polypropylene, and with less tissue drag than the multifilament materials.

What is Novosyn?

Novosyn® is a mid-term absorbable braided and coated synthetic suture made of polyglactin 910. Novosyn® degrades by hydrolysis and provides a predictable and reliable absorption.

What are the 3 types of sutures?

Nylon. A natural monofilament suture. Polypropylene (Prolene). A synthetic monofilament suture.

What color is PDS suture?

PDS sutures also cause minimal tissue reaction. Polydioxanone suture is available in violet colour.

What is Vicryl used for?

VICRYL Suture is a synthetic absorbable suture coated with a lactide and glycolide copolymer plus calcium stearate. It is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including ophthalmic procedures, but not cardiovascular or neurological tissues.

What is Vicryl Rapide used for?

VICRYL RAPIDE Suture is the fastest-absorbing Ethicon synthetic suture and is ideal for use in superficial soft tissue approximation of the skin and mucosa, where only short-term wound support is required.

Which thread is used in surgery?

suture. 1. A length of thread-like material used for surgical sewing or the product of surgical sewing. Sutures are made of many materials including catgut, collagen, linen, silk, nylon, polypropylene, polyester, human FASCIA LATA and stainless steel, and are available in a wide range of thicknesses.

Does PDS suture dissolve?

PDS (polydioxanone suture), a new synthetic absorbable suture, was used in 21 patients undergoing cataract surgery. It still retains 25% of its tensile strength at 42 days but absorption takes 130-180 days.

Who makes Vicryl suture?

Ethicon Inc.
Vicryl (polyglactin 910) is an absorbable, synthetic, usually braided suture, manufactured by Ethicon Inc., a subsidiary of Johnson and Johnson. A monofilament version is also made for use in ophthalmic practice. It is indicated for soft tissue approximation and ligation.

What is the difference between Vicryl and Vicryl Rapide?

The main difference between the two sutures is the rate of absorption: Vicryl Rapide® is irradiated and hence is absorbed much more quickly than Vicryl®. Vicryl® has 75% of its original breaking strength at 14 days and 50% at 21 days. In contrast, Vicryl Rapide® has 50% at 5 days and almost none at 14 days.

Who invented stitches?

The Greek father of medicine, Hippocrates, described suture techniques, as did the later Roman Aulus Cornelius Celsus. The 2nd-century Roman physician Galen described gut sutures. In the 10th century, the catgut suture along with the surgery needle were developed by Abulcasis.
