Visipro™ is a monofilament non-absorbable surgical suture composed of a strand of polypropylene, a synthetic linear polyolefin with a fluorescent red dye.
- Easy suture visualization when exposed to a black light
- Consistent diameter
- Smooth surface for easy tissue passage
- Excellent and consistent flattened knot security
- Minimal memory and reduced fraying
Visipro™ suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic, and neurological surgery.
Visipro™ suture elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues, which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue.
Polypropylene sutures are non-absorbable and there is no known significant change in strength retention in vivo.
Visipro™ suture is supplied sterile in precut lengths attached to various needle types in one dozen boxes and also on a cassette.
All cassette's are Veterinary Use Only.
