ADVAMRYL

Monofilament Synthetic Absorbable Suture

ADVAMRYL

ADVAMRYL Suture is monofilament synthetic absorbable surgical suture prepared from a copolymer of Glycolide and epsilon-caprolactone.

ADVAMRYL Suture is colored violet to increase visibility and are also available undyed.

The advanced extrusion process of the molecule gives ADVAMRYL:

  • Smoother surface for minimal tissue drag & trauma

  • Excellent knot security

  • Minimal memory for handling ease

  • Excellent pliability & handling characteristics

ADVAMRYL Suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation including use in ophthalmic surgery, but not for use in cardiovascular or neurological surgery.

ADVAMRYL being absorbable, should not be used where extended approximation of tissue under stress is required, such as in fascia.

Progressive loss of tensile strength and eventual absorption of ADVAMRYL Suture occurs by means of hydrolysis. Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength followed by a loss of mass.
