FILAXYNTM endures strength for long-term wound support. FILAXYNTM monofilament synthetic absorbable suture is composed of Poly (p-dioxanone). These sutures are used when prolonged wound support is desirable and the surgeon prefers an absorbable suture.
Indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation where long term wound support is desired
Preferred choice for abdominal wall closure and in immunocompromised/geriatric patients
Retains 50%-60% knot tensile strength for up to 28 days
Complete mass absorption within 180 to 220 days
Prolonged wound support.
High initial tensile strength.
Smooth passage through tissues.
Minimal tissue reaction.
FILAXYN sutures are intended for use in general soft tissue approximation including use inpaediatric cardiovascular tissue, microsurgery and ophthalmic surgery.
