Monocryl

Monocryl

Ethicon MONOCRYL is a soft suture with a monofilament structure for smooth passage through tissue. It is synthetic and causes minimal tissue reaction. Thanks to the properties of MONOCRYL it can be used in a wide range of applications. MONOCRYL is also less affected by needle holders than other monofilament sutures, although precaution is always advisable.
