ADVALON suture is non-absorbable, sterile surgical monofilament suture composed of the long-chain aliphatic polymers Nylon 6 and Nylon 6.6. ADVALON suture is dyed black to enhance visibility in tissue.

The advanced extrusion process of the nylon molecule gives ADVALON:

  • ADVALON suture is a non-absorbable sterile surgical suture composed of the long chain aliphatic polymers Nylon 6-6.6.
  • ADVALON suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation and ophthalmic procedure.
  • Due to the gradual loss of tensile strength which may occur over prolonged periods in-vivo, ADVALON suture should not be used where permanent retention of tensile strength is required. ADVALON suture is contraindicated in patients with known sensitivities or allergies to Polyamide.
  • ADVALON suture elicits a minimal initial inflammatory reaction in tissues which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissues. Although polyamide is not absorbed, progressive hydrolysis of the polyamide, In-vivo may result in gradual loss over time of tensile strength. ADVALON suture is effective as a pull-out suture due to its lack of adherence to tissue.
*Mass Absorption: Time in days required for suture to be totally absorbed in the body.

ADVALON suture complies with United States Pharmacopeia requirement for “Non-Absorbable Surgical Suture” and the European Pharmacopoeia for “Sutures, sterile non-absorbable”.

Monofilament construction
Smooth passage through the tissue with minimal tissue drag and minimal trauma
Lesser chance of bacterial transmission, lesser chance of infection
Excellent pliability
Excellent pliability provides exceptional handling and knot tying properties
Excellent elasticity
Superior tactile feedback to the surgeon, minimal suture breakage
Inert polymer
Minimal tissue reaction proving ideal for infected wound closure with suture of choice for desired cosmetic outcomes
