MERICRON XLTM Polyester suture is a non-absorbable synthetic braided suture composed of Poly (ethylene terephthalate). Its high quality material combined with precise braiding mechanism nearly eliminates the occurrence of post-operative suture fragments in the tissue. Unlike absorbable and some non-absorbable sutures, MERICRON XLTM polyester surgical suture does not \ show any significant change in tensile strength retention known to occur in vivo.

The Meril Cardiovascular Suture Range presents a broad spectrum of polyester sutures and even includes those with pledgets (MERICRON XLTM P).


  • Cardiovascular procedures
  • Ophthalmic procedures

  • Smoother suture surface
  • Less resistance to knot sliding
  • Greater strength
