Polydioxanone Suture

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


  • 01

    Prolonged wound support.

  • 02

    High initial tensile strength.

  • 03

    Predictable absorption.

  • 04

    Smooth passage through tissues.

  • 05

    Minimal tissue reaction.


FILAXYN sutures are intended for use in general soft tissue approximation including use inpaediatric cardiovascular tissue, microsurgery and ophthalmic surgery.
