Chromic Catgut Suture is an absorbable sterile surgical gut suture composed of purified connective tissue (mostly collagen) derived from the submucosal fibrous layer of healthy sheep intestines. The chromic suture is processed to provide higher resistance to absorption and treated with chromic salts to delay absorption.
In-house needle manufacturing provides you with better needles with optimum sharpness which finally delivers smooth riding on tissues during suturing.
Chromic Catgut is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and ligation, including use in ophthalmic procedures, but not for use in ophthalmic procedures, but not for use in cardiovascular and neurological tissues.
- Twelve sutures come in every box.
- Chromic Catgut surgical sutures meet all requirements established by the United States Pharmacopoeia for absorbable surgical sutures.
