KRUUSE Linen is a braided and coated multifilament, non-absorbable suture based on cellulose and is derived from twisted long staple flax.
KRUUSE Linen is packed in dry condition but gains a substantial and immediate increase in strength if wetted before use. It possesses a higher tissue reactivity and greater capillarity than cotton. One of the greatest assets of linen is its low extensibility and thus ability to hold a tight knot.
Multifilament, braided: For secure knot tying, high flexibility and easy handling
Coated: For easy knot tying and smooth passage through tissue
Non-absorbable: Provides permanent tensile strength
Chemical composition: KRUUSE Linen Suture is based on cellulose and derived from twisted long staple flax
KRUUSE Linen is commonly used in soft tissue approximation and ligation where a permanent support is needed.
