Suture consists of a large number of fine twisted strands covered by a smooth, seamless, homogeneous polyamide cover. Because of its polyfil construction, Braunamid thread is considerably more flexible than the monofil sutures. Knot-pull tensile strength substantially exceeds USP requirements. Knot-holding ability is excellent because of its inner polyfilament structure. Non-capillary. Sterilized. Braunamid meets or exceeds all legal requirements set forth by
the U.S. government
