Monolac monofilament is a mid-term absorbable, synthetic suture made of glycolide and ε-Caprolactone, available in natural colour for the closure of superficial wounds and in violet for all other indications, when a mid-term monofilament is needed. During absorption the material elicited only a very slight inflammation. The material is degraded into adipic acid, which is completely metabolised in the body. The process begins with a loss of tensile strength, followed by a loss of mass at a later stage. Indication: General soft tissue approximation and/or ligation in all specialties, where an absorbable material is indicated. Contraindication: Monolac monofilament should not be used in tissues subject to expansion, stretching or distension, or which might require long-term mechanical support. Sizes: 6/0 to 2 USP Structure: Monofilament Absorption method: Hydrolysis Strength Retention Profile: SHORT-TERM HEALING (30 days) 1 Day - 100% 7 Days - 60% violet/50% natural 14 Days - 30% violet/20% natural Mass Absorption profile: 90 – 120 days
