Product Description

ORYL (Polyglycolic Acid) Suture which is sold under the brand name of Petcryl Mono, is an initiative of SRI ORION Sutures. The offered absorbable suture contains single strand of synthetic fiber (monofilament) which is basically the co polymer obtained from caprolactone and glycolide.

The implantation ofORYL (Polyglycolic Acid) Suture causes minimal tissue reaction and this suture tends to gain around 50% to 60% initial strength post one week of fixing. After two weeks, its tensile strength reaches to 20% to 30%. Approximately 3 to 4 months are required for total absorption of this suture via hydrolysis method. Most of the attributes of this suture and absorption characteristics have resembles to the features of Monocryl suture. Its monofilament based smooth structure moves through the tissue more smoothly than its braided counterpart. It resembles to nylon based suture in terms of its consistent feature. It is occasionally utilized for time consuming percutaneous wound closure surgery. It is not recommended for high tension wound closure purpose.

This suture is suggested for ligature, subcuticular dermis closure and soft tissue approximation based surgical procedures. It can be accessed in violet and undyed forms.


  • Synthetic Poliglecaprone suture is known for its monofilament based structure which is absorbed easily.
  • It can be accessed in U.S.P size 1 to 6 and in deep violet as well as in beige golden or undyed form.
  • It is made of pure single polymer of PGCL (polyglycolic co caprolactone).
  • Absorbed via hydrolytic method, the absorption of this suture is fixed.
  • Around 50 to 60% of this suture is absorbed after one week of its fixing, 20% to 30% is absorbed post 2 weeks of implantation and it is totally absorbed within three to four months of insertion.


  • The simple knotting pattern of this monofilament suture promotes its easy passing via the tissues.
  • Known for its good knotting characteristics
  • Acknowledged for its good needle attachment force and high tensility level, this suture uses alloy steel needles (300 series) that ensures about its pointed form, high penetration level and excellent strength.


  • The offered highly absorbable suture is not recommended for extended tissue approximation based surgery under high stress, as for e.g. fascia.
