Plain catgut Suture is a fast-absorbing surgical gut suture made from a strand of collagenous material prepared from the submucosal layers of the small intestine of healthy sheep. Fast absorbing surgical gut sutures are sterile and elicit only a slight to a minimal tissue reaction during absorption. In-house needle manufacturing provides you with better needles with optimum sharpness which finally delivers smooth riding on tissues during suturing.
