PROPILEN 5/0 P233 my alternative to troifeln 5/0.
DESCRIPTION: PROPİLEN is a synthetic, non-absorbable, inert sterile surgical monofilament suture. It is composed of isotactic polypropylene polymer of high molecular weight. PROPİLEN is dyed blue (Copper Phtalocyanine blue) for higher visibility. Some combinations are also available as undyed. PROPILEN is also available with PTFE (polytetrafluoro-ethylene) pledgets for use as a pad between the suture and the tissue surface to increase the load-bearing area. PROPİLEN complies with the requirements of the European Pharmacopoeia (EP) and the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) for Non-absorbable Surgical Suture (except for occasional slight oversize in diameter for USP 7/0 (EP 0.5) and 6/0 (EP 0.7) gauges).
INTENDED PURPOSE: PROPİLEN is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation including use in cardiovascular, plastic and reconstructive, ophthalmic and neurological surgery. PROPİLEN surgical sutures are single-use devices.
CLINICAL PERFORMANCE CHARASTERISTICS: PROPİLEN suture elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissue, which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. PROPİLEN is not absorbed, nor is it subject to degradation or weakening by the action of tissue enzymes.
CLINICAL BENEFIT: PROPİLEN sutures are used to approximate tissues when used for suturing open wounds hence limiting infection and elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissue. PROPİLEN sutures are also used as a fixation system for soft tissues or other devices. PROPİLEN is not absorbed, nor is it subject to degradation or weakening by the action of tissue enzymes.
As a monofilament, PROPİLEN, resists involvement in infection and has been successfully employed in contaminated and infected wounds to eliminate or minimize later sinus formation and suture extrusion The lack of adherence to tissues has facilitated the use of PROPİLEN as a pull-out suture.
