PROLENE™ Polypropylene Suture
PROLENE™ Polypropylene Suture is indicated for use in general soft
tissue approximating and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular,
ophthalmic procedures, and neurological procedures.
PROLENE Sutures elicit a minimal inflammatory reaction in tissue,
which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous
connective tissue. PROLENE Sutures are not absorbed, nor are they
subject to degradation or weakening by the action of tissue enzymes.
As a monofilament, PROLENE Sutures 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 PROLENE Suture as a pull-out suture
