Absorbable monofilament suture for Abdominal Wall Closure

Monomax® is the unique suture in the market made of poly-4-hydroxibutyrate.

  • Extra-long term absorption, Monomax loses its relative tensile strength slower than polydioxanone sutures (slower tensile strength degradation profile compared to polydioxanone sutures). [1,2,3]
  • Elasticity and elongation: Monomax® elongates twice as much as polydioxanone sutures. [4]
  • Sizes available USP 2/0 (metric 3) up to USP 1 (metric 4).
  • It degrades by hydrolysis and enzymatic reaction.
