Vilene is a monofilament of Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) which is non-absorbable and is physiologically inert. Maintaining it's tensile strength in situ, Vilene provides superior clinical benefits to the surgeon. Combining the high tensile strength and low elongation gives it excellent handling and knotting properties.
Experience has shown that Vilene has excellent knot security. The springiness that affects all monofilaments when removed from the package can be taken out by a gentle pull. It can be used in all procedures where polypropylene monofilaments are utilized.
Unlike polypropylene which after sterilization is waxy in feel and is prone to fraying, Vilene is smooth, fray free and supple. Vilene is sterilized by gamma irradiation.
