Detailed Description

BASIK PGLA Braided Absorbable Suture -


Polyglactin 910 or PGLA suture is an absorbable, sterile, synthetic, braided suture. PGLA suture are indicated for soft tissue approximation and ligation. The suture’s tensile strength remains for approximately three to four weeks in tissue.


Polyglactin 910 Sutures are   composed of copolymers made from 90% glycolide and 10% L-lactide. Polyglactin 910 suture is an absorbable braided synthetic fibre. The suture us coated and the coating is equal parts of a copolymer of lactide and glactide with calcium stearate. Clinical trials have shown that after two weeks, approximately 70% of Polyglactin 910 suture’s initial strength remained. Polyglactin suture are found to be non-antigenic and non-pyrogenic, eliciting only mild tissue reactivity during the absorption process.
