Plain Catgut Suture
Plain Catgut Suture - ORIGUT is a fast absorbing surgical gut suture made from strand of collage nous material prepared from the sub mucosal layers of the small intestine of healthy sheep. Fast absorbing surgical gut sutures are sterile and elicit only a slight to minimal tissue reaction during absorption.
Type : Twisted multifilament with a monofilament appearance
Material : None
Color : Beige
Tissue reaction : Moderate. Plain catgut has lower tissue reaction
Absorption : By phagocytosis. Complete mass absorption in approximately 65 days. Approximately 50% of tensile strength remains after 7 days. When used in infected tissues or in tissues with increased levels of proteolytic enzymes (stomach, cervix, and vagina) it is more quickly absorbed.
Tensile Strength : Tensile strength is retained for 7 - 14 days.
USP Range : 5/0 – 3
Sterilization : EO (Ethylene Oxide)
