Indications:

  • Nylon suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic, and neurological procedures

Actions:

  • Nylon suture elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues, which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue

Tensile Strength:

  • As with any nylon suture, though not absorbed, progressive hydrolysis of the suture in vivo may result in gradual loss of tensile strength over time
  • Nylon suture should not be used where permanent retention of tensile strength is required

Sterilization:

  • Ethylene oxide
