    surgical wounds, the risk of rejection and the formation of granulomas on the sutures being minimized.

    Ethicon Prolene suture is neither resorbed nor degraded and does not lose its tensile strength under the action of tissue enzymes. It is used in the case of cardiovascular anastomoses and due to the absence of adhesion to the tissues, the Prolene suture is particularly indicated when considering the subsequent removal of the sutures. Available in MULTIPASS round needle (high resistance to bending, double silicone coating). Presented under ZIPPER.

    PROLENE™ sutures are intended for general soft tissue coaptation and/or ligation including cardiovascular surgery, ophthalmology and neurosurgery.

    Inert and flexible, prolene is specially recommended by plastic surgeons for the face and uncovered areas.
