is a sterile absorbable synthetic, multifilament suture composed of
polyglactin 910 glycoside an lactide derived from glycolic and lactic
acids, coated with a blend of caprolactone/gly colid copolymer and
calcium stearoyl lactylate .
sutures are available violet and undyed color from sizes: USP8/0-USP2
PGLA sutures coated with polycaprolactone and calcium stearate.
1.High tensile strength

-Easy knotting and tie down
-Excellent knot security
3. Reliable absorbability
Surgical catgut is indicated for use in general, soft tissue
approximation and/or ligation, including use in ophthalmic procedures,
gastrointestinal, dental and gynecological, but not for use in
cardiovascular and neurological procedures. Plain Catgut suture should
not be used where longer suture support is necessary .
Pay attention to the sensitivities or allergies to collagen or chromium.
Catgut suture have a high initial tensile strength, which is retained
for up to 30 days The process of Chromic catgut's mass absorption is
completed in 90 days While Plain Catgut will be absorbed completely in
