Absorbable surgical suture PGLA has emerged as a cutting-edge solution for surgical wound closure. In this article, we delve into the broad range of advantages and applications of PGLA sutures. With their biodegradability, strength, and versatility, PGLA sutures play a crucial role in promoting optimal wound healing. Join us as we explore the unique properties of absorbable surgical suture PGLA and discover how they revolutionize surgical practices across various specialties, providing enhanced patient comfort and reducing complications.
PGLA is a synthetic absorbable , braided, coated suture composed of a copolymer made from 90% glycolide and 10% L-lactide and is available bothdyed and un-dyed. When dyed, only FDA-approved color additives such as D&C Violet No. 2 are used. The un-dyed suture is milk white (beige) in color. PGLA meets all the requirements established by theUnited States Pharmacopoeia (USP) and the European Pharmacopoeia (EP) for Synthetic Absorbable Surgical Sutures.(except for an occasional slight oversize in some gauges)
Polyfilament synthetic , interwoven composite polymer consisting of goycolides and lactides. The shell is impregnated with an antibacterial material .Absorption during 56-70d. Strength 75% after 14d , 50% after 21d. The Needles are strong, do not break and do not bend. There are grooves in the inner curve of the Needles. Cutting Needles are for precision cutting and multiple passage (any brand name is suitable)
In vitro linear tensile strength retention after 2 weeks inPBS (pH =7.4) at 37℃≥65 % BSR and 40% BSR at three weeks. Absorbable is on an vverage complete in 63 days.
