Informations
Biocryl sutures are indicated for the approximation and/or ligation of the soft tissues, including the usage in ophthalmic procedures. The safety and effectiveness of Biocryl sutures in cardiovascular and neural tissue has not been defined.
Specifics
  • High tensile strength.
  • Easy handling and easy execution of the node.
  • Excellent knot tying security.
  • Excellent sliding through the tissues.
  • Predictable absorption profile.
Tipology
Braided and coated absorbable synthetic suture.
Molecule
Glycolic acid copolymer at 90% and lactic acid at 10% (Polyglactin 910).
Suture tensile strenght
Biocryl sutures, after two weeks post implantation, maintains approximately the 75% of the breaking strength and after three weeks about the 50%. After four weeks, it is about the 30% for USP 4/0 sutures, and less than 25% for USP 2/0.
Absorption
Happens by hydrolysis and is complete in about 56 - 70 days.
