ADVALENE

Monofilament Synthetic Non-Absorbable Suture

ADVALENE

ADVALENE Suture is non-absorbable, sterile surgical suture composed of an isotactic crystalline stereoisomer of polypropylene. The suture is coloured blue to enhance visibility.

The advanced extrusion process of the polypropylene molecule gives ADVALENE:

  • Uniform diameter

  • Isotactic polymer- maximum strength

  • Minimal fraying

  • Minimal memory and reduced “pig-tailing”

ADVALENE Suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximating and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic procedures, and neurological procedures.

ADVALENE Suture complies with united state pharmacopeia requirement for “Non- absorbable surgical suture”.

ADVALENE Suture elicit a minimal inflammatory reaction in tissue, which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. ADVALENE Suture is not absorbed, nor is they subject to degradation or weakening by the action of tissue enzymes.

As a monofilament, ADVALENE Suture is inert, resist involvement in infection and have been successfully employed in contaminated and infected wounds to eliminate or minimize later sinus formation and suture extrusion.

Furthermore, the lack of adherence to the tissues has facilitated the use of ADVALENE Suture as a pull-out suture.
