Fast and monofilament

Monosyn® Quick is a short term resorbable and monofilament suture material. Due to its short resorption time, Monosyn® Quick is used in veterinary practices and clinics, especially in dental surgery and for sutures of the mucosa. With its good elasticity and flexibility in combination with reliable knotability, Monosyn® Quick is particularly well suited for wounds which require only short support.

The monofilament advantages

  • The monofilament sutures appear to have the lowest infection promoting effects [1-4]
  • Compared with braided multifilament sutures, absorbable monofilaments exhibit less tissue drag and cause less tearing because of their smooth surfaces [5]
