Monosorb suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, but not in cardiovascular tissues, microsurgery or in ophthalmic surgery.
In handling suture materials, care should be taken to avoid damage from handling. Avoid crushing or crimping damage due to application of surgical instruments such as forceps or needle holders. Adequate knot security requires the accepted surgical techniques.
Sutures placed on the skin remaining over 7 days may cause localized inflammation and should be removed. Subcutaneous sutures should be placed as deeply as possible to minimize the erythema and/or induration normally associated with absorption.
Under some circumstances, notably orthopedic procedures, immobilization of joints may be employed at the discretion of the surgeon.
Consideration should be taken in the use of absorbable sutures in tissues with poor blood supply as suture extrusion and delayed absorption may occur.
Suture knots must be properly placed (with double initial loop) to be secure. The use of additional loops is appropriate for knotting monofilament threads.
