PROLENE Suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximating and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic procedures, and neurological procedures. High tensile strength and “stretch before break” breaking resistance engineered into every strand. Unique extrusion process ensures uniform suture diameter, avoiding suture weak spots.
PROLENE Sutures are available with a wide range of needles, including innovative technologies such as EVERPOINT Cardiovascular Needles. Prolene Sutures elicit a minimal inflammatory reaction in tissue, which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. Prolene Sutures are not absorbed, nor are they subject to degradation or weakening by the action of tissue enzymes.
