Ethicon Ethilon Nylon Sutures are sterile, non-absorbable and monofilament sutures.
They are manufactured using the long chain aliphatic polymers of Nylon 6 and Nylon 6,6. Ethicon Ethilon Nylon Sutures are known to have 20% loss in tensile retention strength per year.
3.Indications for use
Ethicon Ethilon Nylon sutures are indicated to be used in ophthalmic surgeries and soft tissue ligation/ surgery including cardiovascular surgeries and neurological surgeries.
Ethicon Ethilon Nylon sutures are known to elicit minimal tissue acute inflammatory reaction at the site of suturing and are eventually encapsulated by fibrous connective tissue. Though Nylon is not absorbed by the body, progressive hydrolysis of nylon overtime in vivo can lead to the loss of tensile strength retention hence these sutures are not indicated to be used in ligations where tissue approximation is required for a long time and prolonged tensile strength retention is preferred. The suture fiber and the suture coating are both known to be pharmacologically inactive.
These sutures are available in the diameters USP 2 to USP 11-0 and come as green coloured, black coloured or undyed.
