Non-Absorbable Polypropylene Surgical Suture

FILAPROP TM / Aspiron TM Polypropylene suture is a monofilament, synthetic non-absorbable, sterile surgical suture composed of an isotactic crystalline stereoisomer of polypropylene, a synthetic linear polyolefin. The molecular formula of polypropylene is (C3 H6)n. Polypropylene sutures are available in undyed or dyed with phthalocyanine blue form.

FILAPROP TM / Aspiron TM Polypropylene suture is available in a range of gauge sizes and lengths attached to standard stainless steel needles of various types and sizes.

FILAPROP TM / Aspiron TM Polypropylene comply with the requirements of the United States Pharmacopeia for “Non Absorbable Surgical Suture” and the European Pharmacopeia for “Sterile Synthetic Non Absorbable monofilament Strand.” However, it may be slightly oversize in diameter to U.S.P. for some suture sizes. U.S.P. except for diameter.

Polypropylene Suture- Performance

FILAPROP™/ Aspiron™ Polypropylene suture initially elicits a minimal inflammatory reaction in tissues followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. FILAPROP™/ Aspiron™ Polypropylene suture is neither absorbed, nor subjected to degradation or weakening by the action of tissue enzymes. It is recommended for use in wounds where the least possible suture reaction is desired as it is relatively biologically inert. Being a monofilament suture, FILAPROP™/ Aspiron™ Polypropylene has been successfully employed in surgical wounds which may subsequently become infected or contaminated and thus minimizing later sinus formation and suture extrusion. FILAPROP™/ Aspiron™ Polypropylene is effective pull-out suture due to its lower adherence to tissue.
