Uniglyde Polyglycolic Acid Suture (A Universal Suture)

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

Polyglycolic Acid Suture is an absorbable, sterile, synthetic surgical suture and it was the first Synthetic Absorbable Suture introduced in early 1970s. PGA Sutures are braided and coated composed of polymers made from 100% Homo-Polymer of glycolide. PGA sutures are coated with the equal parts of Polycaprolactone and calcium stearate.

Polyglycolic Acid is dyed with FDA approved dye D and C violet, it is also available in Undyed and meets all the requirements as per the United States Pharmacopeia for Synthetic Absorbable Suture.

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

Indications of Polyglycolic Acid Suture:

Polyglycolic Acid suture absorbs by simple hydrolytic mechanism and absorption is predictable. PGA Suture retains approximately 75% of the initial tensile strength after 2 weeks, 50% after 3 weeks and 25% after 4weeks and is absorbed completely in 60 to 90days. Polyglycolic Suture is inert and has a relatively low tissue reaction.

  • Properties: Good flexibility, Reliable knot security, Smooth passage through tissue provides no trauma, High tensile strength.
  • PGA Sutures are used in general surgery, gynecological, soft tissue approximation, including use in ophthalmic procedures. It is not used for cardiovascular and neurological procedures.
