Catgut plain, Needle-and-Thread Combination

Catgut plain is the classic absorbable suture in veterinary medicine. Although it is a multifilament, it has a monofilament look and is neither coated nor treated. The material for Catgut plain is obtained from the serosal layer of bovine intestines. To ensure a high degree of safety, the bovine intestines used only come from countries that are classified BSE-free.
The Catgut plain needle-and-thread combination has many applications thanks to the suture's high tensile strength: general surgery, ligatures, adapting soft tissue, visceral surgery, gynaecology, etc.
