This synthetic absorbable monofilament has excellent pliability and handling characteristics. At 7 days it retains 42 – 76% tensile strength, 36 – 52% at 14 days and is essentially absorbed at 90 days. These characteristics make it very popular for subcuticular closure and soft tissue approximation. Available in violet.
- Dyed (violet)
In Vivo Strength Retention:
- 42-76% at 7 days
- 36-52% at 14 days
- Essentially complete by 90 days
