Informations
Glyco sutures are indicated for the approximation and/or ligation of the soft tissues, including the usage in ophthalmic procedures. The safety and effectiveness of Glyco 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
Polyglycolic acid (PGA).
Suture tensile strenght
Glyco sutures, after two weeks of post implantation, maintains approximately the 82% of the breaking strength and after three weeks about the 56%.
Absorption
Happens by hydrolysis and is complete in about 60 - 90 days.
