Monofilament: For smooth passage through tissue and high
Synthetic: Minimal tissue reaction
Non-absorbable: Provides permanent tensile strength
KRUUSE Nylon sutures are coloured blue for easy identification
during surgery. The monofilament and synthetic properties of
the suture give a smooth surface, minimal tissue reaction and
decreased incidence of infection and trauma.
KRUUSE Nylon suture is quite pliable and does not support
bacterial growth due to the smooth surface. The elasticity of
KRUUSE Nylon suture makes it useful in retention and skin closure.
n KRUUSE Nylon monofilament suture is made of monofilament
polyamide 6&66 by extruding a strong uniform strand.
