Absorbable Surgical Suture PGA

This product is divided into two types: with needle and without needle. The suture with needle is formed by connecting a suture needle and a suture thread. The suture needle is made of materials that meet the requirements of the standard, and has good elasticity and toughness; the suture material is polyglycoacid, and the suture thread has a surface Polycaprolactone (polycaprolactone) and calcium stearate coating.



PGA is a synthetic absorbable, braided, coated suturecomposed of aPolyglycolic acid (PGA) and is availableboth dyed and un-dyed.When dyed, onlyFDA-approvedcolor additives such as D&CViolet No. 2 areused.The un-dyed suture ismilkwhite (beige) in color.PGA is characterised by very high initial strength anda reabsorption, adequated tothe healing processes, thusproviding the maximum safety expected from syntheticabsorbable braids.


Its mechanism ofAbsorption takes place by hydrolysisand guarantees a very high rate of tensile strength anda minimum degree of absorption in the initial critical phaseof healing. In vitroLinear tensile strength retention after2 weeks inPBS (PH=7.4) at37℃≥65%BSRThe total absorptionduration is between 50-80 daysafter the implantation, avoiding adverses reactionsand tisular inflammation.


The residual tensile strengthis the tensile strength thatthe suture supports during the healing period.Afterimplantation, the strength ofan absorbable suturedecreases over time. The retention time represents thetime during which the suture retains a certain degree of




Violet or Undyed.


In USP 8-0 - USP 2 Gauge sizes.
