Trulene

Trulene

Non-absorbable Monofilament Polypropylene Suture

FEATURES OF TRULENE

  • Low tissue reactivity
  • High tensile strength
  • High plasticity allows better accommodation of wound healing
  • Easy to remove – ideal for a running, subcuticular closure
  • Does not adhere to tissues and can be used as an intradermal suture

This non-absorbable suture is used for approximation where support is required for a lifetime. It has excellent tensile strength and does not lengthen while knotting. Trulene for CV comes with MANI needles and suture specs for superior performance, sharpness and strength.

APPLICATIONS

  • Hernia repair
  • Permanent fixtures
  • General surgery
  • Microsurgery
  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Cardiovascular surgery
  • Plastic surgery
  • Can also be used in ophthalmic and neurological procedures

Trulene is suitable for use in general soft tissue approximation. This suture is neither absorbed nor subjected to weakening by tissue enzymes.
