ADVAMRYL Poliglecaprone-25 Monofilament Synthetic Absorbable Surgical Suture

Supreme handling performance for confidence in subcuticular skin closure

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

A monofilament suture scores over a braided suture:

  • Ability to pass more smoothly through the tissue resulting in lesser tissue trauma1
  • The reduced surface area of a monofilament suture and its lack of interstitial spaces further minimize the risk of infection by reducing the ability of bacteria to harbor 2-3

Superior pliability offers

  • Excellent handling characteristics
  • Knot tying properties and smooth run-down

Ideal for subcuticular skin closure

  • No need of suture removal1
  • Acapillarity - Minimal risk of bacterial transmisson1
  • 66% more knot pull tensile strength vs. In-house limit ensures excellent support throughout the critical wound healing period

    OPTIMAL TENSILE STRENGTH
  • Knot pull tensile strength (KgF)4
  • - the confidence to suture with ease

Premium Needles for consistent Superior Performance
  • DURABLE COAT RETAINS SHARPNESS...PASS AFTER PASS
    Maintains needle sharpness over the duration of procedure, resulting into consistent penetration pass after pass thus less potential for tissue trauma.
  • RIBBED BODY FOR SUPERIOR CONTROL
    For superior grasping and stabilityof needle in needle forceps.
  • CHAMFERING MINIMUM SUTURE DETACHMENT
    Diminishes chances for suture fracturing at the swage, by rounding off the sharp edges of the barrel in the swage area of the needle.
  • ELECTROPOLISHING SMOOTH & BRIGHT
    Makes needle surface free from micro asperities, thus creates ultra sharp edges for lesser tissue drag.

Robust manufacturing process & superior primary aluminum packaging

ADVAMRYL suture is a synthetic absorbable monofilament sterile surgical suture composed of a copolymer made from a copolymer of Glycolide and ε-caprolactone.

ADVAMRYL suture is available in both undyed & violet form.

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

ADVAMRYL suture being an absorbable suture, should not be used where extended approximation of tissue under stress is required. The use of this suture is also contraindicated in patients with known sensitivities or allergies to Poliglecaprone 25.

The 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.

*Mass Absorption: Time in days required for suture to be totally absorbed in the body.
