This violet, synthetic, absorbable monofilament has excellent pliability and handling characteristics. It retains 42% to 76% tensile strength at 7 days, 36% to 52% at 14 days, and is essentially absorbed at 90 days.1 MonoPGA-PCL offers significantly less drag than absorbable synthetic sutures, provides excellent knot security, and offers a consistently reliable breaking strength, retention, and absorption rate. These characteristics make it very popular for subcuticular closure and soft-tissue approximation.

All our suture is configured in racetrack packaging to minimize memory. We offer this suture in multiple sizes with a variety of needle types. We use only black needles for enhanced visibility and minimal glare.

Common uses for this type of suture include:

  • General and skin closure
  • Urology
  • Gastrointestinal
