Sutures, Synthetic, Absorbable, Polyglactin

Definition : Synthetic sutures made of polyglactin, an absorbable (i.e., biodegradable) polymer. These sutures are typically available in sterile braided multifilament coated (e.g., a copolymer of lactide and glycolide, polycraprolate) thread sections (e.g., 18, 30 in [45, 76 cm] long) attached to a single-use needle as an integral device; they are frequently colored for easy identification during surgery. Polyglactin absorbable synthetic sutures keep their tensile strength up to 2 weeks, and complete absorption occurs in 56 to 70 days; their intended use includes general soft-tissue approximation (even in the presence of infection) and vessel ligation.
