KRUUSE Promilene is a monofilament non-absorbable suture. It is made from polymer of polypropylene.
Monofilament: For smooth passage through tissue and high tissue compatibility
Synthetic: For minimal tissue reaction
Non-absorbable: Provides permanent tensile strength
KRUUSE Promilene 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.
The suture is resistant to repeated bending.
KRUUSE Promilene is composed of an isotactic crystalline stereoisomer of polypropylene, a polymer of propylene
Blue and pink fluorescence
KRUUSE Promilene is commonly used in soft tissue approximation and ligation where a permanent support is needed.
Areas of use include:
■ Skin closure
■ Ophthalmic surgery
■ Vascular and cardiovascular surgery
