Ethicon Prolene Polypropylene Sutures are synthetic, sterile, monofilament and non-absorbable sutures.
These sutures are manufactured from a synthetic linear polyolefin which is an isotactic crystalline stereoisomer of polypropylene.
Ethicon Prolene Polypropylene Sutures are known to have indefinite breaking strength retention.
4.Indications for use
The use of these sutures is indicated for general soft tissue ligaton/ surgery including cardiovascular surgery, neurological procedure and ophthalmological procedures. These sutures have been used by cardiovascular surgeons for more than 40 years. Ethicon Prolene Polypropylene sutures have a property of “stretch before break” and high tensile strength in every strand. The weak spots of sutures are avoided by the extrusion process which ensures a uniform suture diameter. Ethicon Prolene Polypropylene sutures are known to elicit minimum inflammatory tissue response followed by encapsulation by fibrous connective tissue. These sutures are non absorbable and are not degraded by any biological enzyme. The lack of adherence of these sutures makes them easy to pull out.
They are available as blue coloured or undyed. Ethicon Prolene Polypropylene sutures are available in the diameters USP 10-0 to USP 2.
