Mono Q™ is offered on a suture Micro Cassette. The material is a short-term synthetic absorbable monofilament composed of a copolymer made from 75% glycolide and 25% -caprolactone (PGCL). Mono Q™ is available for dyed(violet) and undyed(beige).

Mono Q™ Characteristics  

  • Extended retention strength.                                                         
  • Superb handling with exceptional suppleness, and excellent knot security.
  • Monofilament sutures are Non-wicking, helps to reduce bacterial migration along suture line.
  • Violet color allows for better visibility during surgery.

Characteristics:

High pliability with excellent handling properties
Excellent tensile strength
Lower Incidence of Infection and Trauma due to Smooth Surface
Loss of tensile strength is progressive and absorption of Mon-Q sutures occurs by means of hydrolysis

Indications
Mono Q™ (PGCL) synthetic absorbable monofilament sutures are indicated for use in soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, but not for use in cardiovascular or neurological surgery.

Actions
Mono Q™ (PGCL) synthetic absorbable monofilament suture may elicit minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues, followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue.  Progressive loss of tensile strength and absorptions of PGCL suture occurs by means of hydrolysis.

Tensile Strength
The retention strength of Mono Q™ is about 50% of the initial strength after 7 days.

Absorption
Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength without appreciable loss of mass. Complete absorption of Mono Q™ sutures is essentially complete between 80 and 100 days.

Open Exposure Time

Once removed from the foil packaging, product is good for up to 30 days.

Sterilization
Ethylene oxide.
