Suture Charateristics

Suture
Suture Charateristics
Colour
Chromic, Brown
Raw Material
Obtained from the thin intestine serous layer of a healthy sheep
Coating
Nil
Material type
Natural, animal originated suture twisted filament, absorbable
Absorption
Absorbed by enzymatic digestion in approximately 90 days
Characteristics
High initial tensile strength, minimum tissue reaction
Application
Chromic catgut is intended for use in general soft tissue approximation and / or ligation
Tensile strength
The tensile strength of the suture progressive loss occurs as a result of a enzymatic digestion process that degrades the catgut chromic allowing the absorption and subsequent metabolism by the organism; Studies show that the absorption of the catgut chromic suture is practically complete in about 90 days after implantation
Knotting strength
Excellent Tissue reaction Minimal
Sterilisation
Ethylene oxide
Standard sizes
USP size 5/0 to 2
Packaging
One, two or three dozens
