The extraordinarily smooth, low-friction proprietary coating on this suture reduces tissue drag. PolyPGA is a synthetic absorbable suture with exceptional strength that ensures closure through the critical wound healing period, up to 4 weeks. Its synthetic nature offers minimal tissue inflammation and is ideal for tissues requiring knot security. It retains approximately 50% of its high initial strength at 2 weeks and 20% at 3 weeks.1 It is available as violet multifilament.

All our suture is configured in racetrack packaging to minimize memory. We use only black needles for enhanced visibility and minimal glare.

Common uses for this type of suture include:

  • Appropriate for most tissues, including ophthalmic and dental surgery
  • General and skin closure
  • Urology
  • Gastrointestinal
