Polypropylene Monofilament Non-Absorbable Surgical Sutures AM-640

Polypropylene Monofilament Non-Absorbable Surgical Sutures AM-640

  • The Polypropylene synthetic surgical suture is indicated in general closure, herniorrhaphy, plastic / reconstructive surgery, urology and pediatrics. In addition, Polypropylene is particularly useful in cardiovascular surgery, especially as it is non-thrombogenic, and supporting the heart’s propulsion. By not adhering to the tissues, this synthetic suture is also ideal in areas which it must be subsequently withdrawn from (skin).





Polypropylene is a non-absorbable synthetic monofilament surgical suture. This suture is not subject to degradation or loss of strength caused by the enzymatic action of the tissues. It is a synthetic thread which retains its original strength for years, so it is convenient in procedures requiring high strength for a long time. It is much more flexible than other sutures, easy to handle and, because of its high tensile strength and controlled elongation, it is a suture able to secure the approximation of the tissue’s edges until they heal.
