Braided & Coated Polyglactin 910 Suture
Description : PROCRYL 910 sutures are coated, braided, synthetic absorbable, sterile surgical suture for medium term wound support with well proven record and composition.
The suture's tensile strength remains for approximately three to four weeks in tissue. It has a unique molecular structure which cause the suture to retain its strength over the critical wound healing period and then allows rapid absorption after the suture has served its purpose.
Polyglactin 910 sutures are found to be non-antigenic and non-pyrogenic, eliciting only mild tissue reactivity during the absorption process.
Special Features : Excellent tensile strength, predictable absorption by simple hydrolysis, precise knot placement as compared with PGA suture, minimal tissue reaction, coating ensures smooth tissue passage
