- Vicryl Suture is a synthetic absorbable sterile surgical suture composed of a copolymer made from 90% glycolide and 10% L-lactide.
- The progressive loss of tensile strength and eventual absorption of Coated VICRYL Suture occurs by means of hydrolysis.
- Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength followed by a loss of mass.
- Sterile, factory sealed box of 36 sutures
Braided suture for easy handling and secure knot tying.
- Coated for smooth passage through tissue.
- Synthetic for minimal tissue reaction.
- 75% tensile strength at 14 days.
- Sterile, factory sealed.
- Absorption time 56-70 days (63 days in Avg).
- Strength Retention Profile - 75% @ 14 days, 50% @ 21 days, 25% @ 28 days.
- Sharp enough to penetrate and carry suture through tissue with minimal resistance.
- Slim as possible without compromising strength.
- Rigid to resist bending, yet ductile to resist breaking.
- Stable in the grasp of the needle holder.
