Polysorb™ Undyed Braided Absorbable Suture, 3-0, C-13, Reverse Cutting, 30"
Polysorb™ sutures are composed of Lactomer™ glycolide/lactide copolymer, which is a synthetic polyester composed of glycolide and lactide (derived from glycolic and lactic acids). They are prepared by coating the suture with a mixture of a caprolactone/glycolide copolymer and calcium stearoyl lactylate.
The advanced extrusion process of the molecule of Lactomer™ 9-1, the exclusive braiding process and coating system, give the suture:
- Excellent strength over the critical wound healing period
- Excellent knot security
- Excellent handling
- Predictable absorption profile
- Polysorb™ sutures are indicated for use in soft tissue approximation or ligation and ophthalmic surgery, but not in cardiovascular or neural tissue.
