KRUUSE Krupramid is a pseudo-monofilament, non-absorbable suture. It is composed of synthetic Polyamide 6.6 strands enclosed in a polyamide 6 sheet. The structure is unique and the smooth surface gives a minimal tissue reaction and decreased incidence of infection and trauma.
Pseudo-monofilament: For smooth passage through tissue, high tissue compatibility and excellent handling properties
Synthetic: Minimal tissue reaction
Non-absorbable: Provides permanent tensile strength
KRUUSE Krupramid Suture has a twisted structure and is unique because it is made of many fine inner nylon fibers which are enclosed in a smooth nylon outer shell. As a result, this suture appears smooth like a monofilament suture but ties better with fewer knots, and stays tied even with short tag ends.
KRUUSE Krupramid is very strong and has excellent handling properties and knot security. It gives permanent tissue support with high flexibility.
Colour: White and black
KRUUSE Krupramid is commonly used in soft tissue approximation and ligation where permanent support is needed.
Areas of use include:
■ Skin closure
■ Ophthalmic surgery
■ Vascular and cardiovascular surgery
