MONO-DOX®
Monofilament Polydioxanone (PDO) Synthetic Absorbable Suture

DESCRIPTION

Mono-Dox® is a polydioxanone (PDO) monofilament synthetic absorbable, sterile surgical suture prepared from the polyester, poly(p-dioxanone).

CHARACTERISTICS

Polydioxanone (PDO) exhibits:

•  Extended holding strength
•  Excellent handling, exceptional suppleness, and good knot security
•  Non-wicking, which helps reduce bacterial migration along the suture line
•  FDA-approved D&C Violet No. 2 color for better visibility during surgery

TENSILE STRENGTH

Subcutaneous tissue implantation studies in rats indicate Mono-Dox® suture retains approximately 75% of initial tensile strength at 14 days, 66% at 28 days and 53% at 42 days post implantation.

ABSORPTION

Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength without appreciable loss of mass. Absorption of Mono-Dox® is essentially complete between 180 and 220 days.

COLOR
