Plain Catgut Suture

UNIGUT – Plain catgut Suture is a fast absorbing surgical gut suture made from a strand of collagenous material prepared from the submucosal layers of the small intestine of healthy sheep. Fast absorbing surgical gut sutures are sterile and elicit only a slight to minimal tissue reaction during absorption.

Indications

Catgut Suture is fast absorbing surgical gut sutures are intended for dermal (skin) suturing only. They should be utilized only for external knot tying procedures.

Monofilament Poliglecaprone 25 Suture

Monofilament Poliglecaprone 25 suture is a monofilament synthetic absorbable surgical suture prepared from a copolymer of glycolide and epsilon-caprolactone. Monofilament Poliglecaprone 25 suture copolymer has been found to be non antigenic, non pyrogenic and elicits only a slight tissue reaction during absorption.

Indications

Monofilament Poliglecaprone 25 sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, but not for use in cardiovascular or neurological tissues, microsurgery or ophthalmic surgery.

Monofilament Polydioxanone Suture

Polydioxanone Suture monofilament synthetic absorbable suture is prepared from the polyester, poly (p-dioxanone).

Indications

Two important characteristics describe the in vivo performance of absorbable sutures first tensile strength retention and second the absorption rate (loss of mass). UNISYNTH PDS synthetic absorbable suture has been formulated to minimize the variability of these characteristics and to provide wound support through an extended healing period.
