Learn About Covidien Biosyn Monofilament Suture, Absorbable, Size 5-0, P-13, 18"

Biosyn monofilament synthetic absorbable sutures are prepared from a synthetic polyester composed of glycolide, dioxanone, and trimethylene carbonate. Biosyn synthetic absorbable sutures are colored violet to increase visibility and are also available undyed.


Biosyn synthetic absorbable sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, but not for use in cardiovascular or neurological surgery.


Biosyn synthetic absorbable sutures elicit a minimal acute inflammatory
reaction in tissues, which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. Progressive loss of tensile strength and eventual absorption of Biosyn synthetic absorbable sutures occurs by means of hydrolysis where the suture is broken down to glycolic acid, dioxanoic acid, propane diol and carbon dioxide which are subsequently absorbed and metabolized by the body.

Tensile Strength:

Tensile strength averages for Biosyn synthetic absorbable sutures are approximately 75% of U.S.P and E.P. minimum knot strength at two weeks and approximately 40% at three weeks post-implant.


Ethylene oxide.


Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength without appreciable loss of mass. Absorption of Biosyn synthetic absorbable sutures is essentially
complete between 90 and 110 days.


The sutures are supplied sterile, in pre-cut lengths and ligating reels, non-needled or affixed to various needle types using both permanent and removable needle attachment techniques. Please refer to the individual package IFUs for complete instructions, indications, contraindications, warnings and precautions.
