KRUUSE PD-X Suture is a synthetic, absorbable, monofilament, sterile suture composed of polydioxanone. Available dyed violet.
Complete mass absorption in 180-220 days (approximately 75% of original tensile strength remains 14 days after implantation, 65% of original tensile strength remains  28 days after implantation, and 50% of original tensile strength remains 42 days after implantation).

KRUUSE PD-X is commonly used in soft tissues and ligation where absorbable sutures are indicated, including:
■ Ductus ligation

■ GI surgery
■ Facia approximation
■ Joint capsula closure
■ Ligament ligation
