Ti-Cron or Tycron - AJ

Posted: Oct 31, 2009

These two suture materials are listed in Stedman's Medical & Surgical Equipment Words.  This is probably a very old discussion, but are there any clues to help identify which spelling to use?  I am transcribing the fascial closure on a hip replacement surgery.

Ti-Cron is correct nm - Snow Bunny
