VISORB QUICK®

Fast-Absorbing, Braided, Coated, Polyglycolic  Acid (PGA), Synthetic Absorbable Suture

DESCRIPTION

Visorb Quick® is a fast absorbing, coated, braided polyglycolic acid, synthetic absorbable, sterile surgical suture composed of a 100% polymer made from polyglycolic acid.  The undyed suture is milk white in color.

CHARACTERISTICS

Fast absorbing polyglycolic acid is intended to model the performance of collagen (surgical gut) suture.

TENSILE STRENGTH

Subcutaneous tissue implantation studies of coated Visorb Quick® sutures in rats show that after 7 days post-implantation, approximately 54% of the original tensile strength remains. Intramuscular implantation studies in rats shows that the absorption of these sutures occurs thereafter and is essentially complete by 42 days.

ABSORPTION

Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength without appreciable loss of mass.  Absorption of Visorb Quick® sutures is essentially complete in 42 days.

Undyed
