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.
High tensile strength.
Easy handling and easy execution of the node.
Excellent knot tying security.
Excellent sliding through the tissues.
Predictable absorption profile.
Braided and coated absorbable synthetic suture.
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%.
Happens by hydrolysis and is complete in about 60 - 90 days.
