Catgut chrome, Needle-and-Thread Combination

The suture of the absorbable Catgut chrome needle-and-thread combination is made of twisted multifilament in a monofilament look. This material - very popular with veterinary surgeons - is made of purified collagen obtained from the serosal layer of selected bovine intestines and treated with chromium salts. The dark brown suture provides excellent tissue support, even absorption and excellent knot security. It has versatile uses in general surgery, the adaptation of soft tissue and for ligatures.
