Monomax® Absorbable monofilament suture for Abdominal Wall Closure Monomax® is the unique suture in the market made of poly-4-hydroxibutyrate. - Extra-long term absorption, Monomax loses its relative tensile strength slower than polydioxanone sutures (slower tensile strength degradation profile compared to polydioxanone sutures). [1,2,3] - Elasticity and elongation: Monomax® elongates twice as much as polydioxanone sutures. [4] - Sizes available USP 2/0 (metric 3) up to USP 1 (metric 4). - It degrades by hydrolysis and enzymatic reaction. A UNIQUE SUTURE Maximum Elongation Monomax® elongates twice as much as polydioxanone sutures. [4] Monomax® has peak values of elongation more than double the elongation values of PDS® II. According to the basic assumption that a more elongable suture material should have a positive impact on the tissue strangulation, Monomax® can follow peak loads (during coughing, movements, etc.) easier than PDS® II. The latter one is rather rigid already beginning at low forces which might disturb the blood supply to the sutured tissues. [4] [1] In vivo test. Lab No. 3080. [2] In vivo test. Lab No 2540. [3] Lab No. 01C 01850 00. [4] Data on file RDR/DID/MON/MAU/13118.
