ADVALON

Monofilament Synthetic Non-Absorbable Suture

ADVALON

ADVALON Suture is non-absorbable, sterile surgical monofilament suture composed of the long-chain aliphatic polymers Nylon 6 and Nylon 6.6. ADVALON Suture is dyed black to enhance visibility in tissue.

The advanced extrusion process of the nylon molecule gives ADVALON:

  • Uniform diameter

  • Elasticity to ensure compact and safe knotting

  • Excellent and consistent knotting strength

  • Inertness for minimal risk of infections

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

ADVALON Suture elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissue, which is followed by a gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. While nylon is not absorbed, progressive hydrolysis of the nylon in vivo may result in gradual loss of tensile strength over time.

Due to the gradual loss of tensile strength which may occur over prolonged periods in vivo, nylon suture should not be used where permanent retention of tensile strength is required.
