Braided & Coated Polyglycolic Acid Suture

Polyglycolic Acid is an absorbable, sterile, synthetic surgical suture, composed of homopolymers of Glycolide (100%). UNIGLYDE is also available undyed. UNIGLYDE

Acid Suture meets all the requirements as per United States Pharmacopeia for Absorbable Surgical suture (Synthetic)

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

Indications of Polyglycolic Acid Suture

Polyglycolic Acid (PGA Suture) suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in ophthalmic procedures, but not for use in cardiovascular or neurological tissues.

  • Smooth Surface provides no tissue trauma
  • Secure Knot holding capacity
  • Best suture for critical wound support
  • Provides Best tissue support even after smaller diameter
  • Hydrolytic absorption ensures no tissue reaction
