Monofilament: For smooth passage through tissue and high tissue compatibility
Synthetic: Minimal tissue reaction
Non-absorbable: Provides permanent tensile strength
KRUUSE Nylon Suture is coloured blue for easy identification during surgery. The monofilament and synthetic properties of the suture give a smooth surface, minimal tissue reaction, and decreased incidence of infection and trauma.
KRUUSE Nylon Suture is quite pliable and does not support bacterial growth due to the smooth surface. The elasticity of the KRUUSE Nylon Suture makes it useful in retention and skin closure.
Chemical composition: KRUUSE Nylon Suture is made of monofilament polyamide 6&66
KRUUSE Nylon 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
