Caprosyn™ synthetic absorbable suture’s quick absorption (56 days), durable polymer material and monofilament construction provide smooth passage through tissue, better approximation or ligation, and minimized potentiation of infection. Patients can experience less discomfort during healing, less wound complications and a faster recovery.
The advanced extrusion process of the molecule of Polygytone™ 6211 gives the suture:
Caprosyn™ sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, but not for use in cardiovascular or neurological surgery, microsurgery, or ophthalmic surgery.
The importance of speed for recovery–QUick absorption can Lessen WoUnd complications Patients can experience less discomfort during healing. Caprosyn™ suture’s quick absorption, durable polymer material and monofilament construction means smooth passage through tissue, better approximation or ligation, and minimized potentiation of infection. In other words, working toward a faster recovery for your patients. Specifically, Caprosyn™ sutures deliver a much faster absorption rate than other USP synthetic absorbable sutures–essentially complete in 56 days.

Sofsilk™ sutures are non-absorbable, sterile, non-mutagenic surgical sutures composed of natural proteinaceous silk fibers called fibroin. The braided sutures are available coated uniformly with either silicone or a special wax mixture to reduce capillarity and to increase surface lubricity, which enhances handling characteristics, ease of passage through tissue, and knot run-down properties.
The manufacturing process, from braiding to coating, gives the suture superior softness and compliance for maximum surgical handling. The proprietary coating process provides smooth flow through tissue while maintaining optimal knot security.
Sofsilk™ sutures are for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic, microsurgery, and neurological surgery.
Velosorb™ Fast sutures are composed of absorbable synthetic polyester comprised of glycolide and lactide (derived from glycolic and lactic acids).
This braided absorbable suture offers:
Velosorb™ Fast sutures are indicated for use in soft tissue approximation of the skin and mucosa, when only 7-10 days of wound support is required. Application for episiotomy repair, where fast absorption is preferred, may be beneficial for patient comfort and dyspareunia. However, it is not indicated for use in ligation, opthalmic, cardiovascular or neurological procedures.
Patient comfort and surgeon’s needs in mind

Polysorb™ Sutures are braided absorbable sutures composed of Lactomer™ glycolide/lactide copolymer, which is a synthetic polyester composed of glycolide and lactide (derived from glycolic and lactic acids). They are prepared by coating the suture with a mixture of a caprolactone/glycolide copolymer and calcium stearoyl lactylate. The sutures are colored violet to increase visibility and are also available undyed.Features
The advanced extrusion process of the molecule of Lactomer™ 9-1, the exclusive braiding process and coating system, give the suture:
Polysorb™ sutures are indicated for use in soft tissue approximation or ligation and ophthalmic surgery, but not in cardiovascular or neural tissue.
