Unigut Chromic Catgut Suture (Experience Met Energy)

Natural Absorbable Suture U.S.P (Sterilized Surgical Needled Suture)

Chromic Catgut Suture is a twisted multifilament structure with a monofilament appearance, It is natural surgical gut suture made by twisting together strand of Collagenous material taken from the submucosal layers of the small intestine of healthy sheep and goat.

The chromic catgut is processed to provide higher resistance to absorption and treated with chromic salts to delay absorption. Chromic sutures are sterile and elicit only to a minimal tissue reaction during the absorption.

In-house needle manufacturing provides the better needles with optimum sharpness which is finally delivers smooth riding on tissue during suturing.

Indications

Chromic Catgut is naturally absorbable surgical suture and absorb by simple enzymatic mechanism and absorption is not as predictable as in synthetic sutures. Chromic catgut suture tend to absorb faster in affected tissues. Unigut suture initial tensile strength is lost within 14 to 21 days and is absorbed completely in 90 to 120 days. It is non-adhering and biologically inert.

  • Best use for: General Closure, Obstetrics/Gynecology and Gastro-intestinal tract surgery.
  • Ultimate Suture: Fast Healing tissue and Muscles, Soft tissue approximation.
  • Unigut Suture meets all the requirements established by the United States Pharmacopoeia for natural absorbable surgical suture.

  • What is chromic catgut Suture?

Chromic Catgut (Unigut) is a suture made from strand of Collagenous material prepared from the submucosal layer of small intestine of healthy Sheep or goat.

  • What is the difference between plain gut and chromic gut sutures?

There is not much difference between the plain and chromic catgut other than absorption period and colour. Catgut is a suture made from strand of Collagenous material prepared from the submucosal layer of small intestine of healthy Sheep or goat. Catgut chromic is treated with chrome salts which will delay the absorption. Catgut chromic  chromic gets absorbed completely within 60 to 90 days and Catgut plain gets absorbed completely within 60 to 70 days. Catgut chromic is Brown in colour and Catgut plain is undyed or Beige colour.

  • Is Chromic Gut Suture monofilament or multifilament?

It is twisted multifilament structure with a monofilament appearance.

Yes, it is absorbable natural suture.

  • Do chromic sutures dissolve?

Yes, it dissolves (Absorbs). It is absorbable natural suture.

  • Where is chromic gut suture used?

Catgut Chromic is used for all the surgical procedures as per the surgeon’s choice.

  • When do you use chromic gut suture?

Chromic gut sutures have high knot-pull tensile strength and due to this excellent handling features, chromic gut is used for all the surgical procedures including general closure, ophthalmic, orthopedics, obstetrics, and gastrointestinal surgery.

  • How long does it take chromic gut sutures to resorb?

Catgut chromic gets absorbed completely within 60 to 90 days
