Monosorb suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, but not in cardiovascular tissues, microsurgery or in ophthalmic surgery.

Warnings

  • The use of this suture may be inappropriate for elderly patients, malnourished or weakened patients, or patients with any conditions which may contribute to delayed wound healing.
  • Since this is an absorbable suture, the use of supplemental sutures for additional support should be considered by the surgeon in the closure of wounds which may undergo expansion, stretching or distention.
  • For single use only. DO NOT RESTERILIZE.
  • Discard remaining strands.
  • Do not rub the strand with a surgical glove or with gauze.
  • Users should be familiar with surgical procedures and techniques involving absorbable sutures before using the product.
  • Do not use the suture if the package is opened or damaged! Discard open, unused sutures.
  • For more information, please read the product’s package insert.

Precautions

In handling suture materials, care should be taken to avoid damage from handling. Avoid crushing or crimping damage due to application of surgical instruments such as forceps or needle holders. Adequate knot security requires the accepted surgical techniques.

Sutures placed on the skin remaining over 7 days may cause localized inflammation and should be removed. Subcutaneous sutures should be placed as deeply as possible to minimize the erythema and/or induration normally associated with absorption.

Under some circumstances, notably orthopedic procedures, immobilization of joints may be employed at the discretion of the surgeon. 

Consideration should be taken in the use of absorbable sutures in tissues with poor blood supply as suture extrusion and delayed absorption may occur. 

Suture knots must be properly placed (with double initial loop) to be secure. The use of additional loops is appropriate for knotting monofilament threads.
