Surgicryl PGA is an absorbable, synthetic suture with exceptionally good tissue compatibility. Surgicryl PGA is synthetically manufactured from polyglycolic acid and therefore only causes minimal tissue reaction. This suture by SMI is coated with polycaprolactone and calcium stearate to reduce the sawing effect and tissue trauma.
Surgicryl PGA is mainly used in general surgery, but also in obstetrics, visceral surgery and for ligatures.
Properties of Surgicryl PGA:
Braided multifilament with high tensile strength
Economical usage: spool material to be cut
Violet colouring - good visibility
Advantages of Surgicryl PGA:
Minimal tissue reaction
Excellent tissue support
High tensile strength
Supple tissue drag thanks to special coating
Very easy to handle
Excellent knot security
Absorption of Surgicryl PGA:
Its absorption is gentle through hydrolysis - as opposed to natural sutures which are decomposed by phagocytosis.
Completely absorbed after 60-90 days
Approximately 50% of tensile strength still remains after 21 days
You can buy Surgicryl PGA suture from Praxisdienst-VET as good-value spool material or in sterile needle-and-thread combinations.
