Overview for Covidien / Medtronic GG122 Chromic Gut Sutures, Size 3-0 - 12/bx

Chromic Gut Sutures are absorbable sterile surgical sutures prepared from purified connective tissue (mostly collagen) taken from the serosal layer of beef (bovine) intestines. 

Choose a Taper Needle or Reverse Cutting Needle. The Taper Needle is made from Surgalloy Material. This needle is strong and sharp preventing it from bending during surgery, yet flexible enough to reduce breakage.

The Tri-coined Reverse Cutting edge needle has properties that are best used for ophthalmic procedures and traction suture placement. It assists in better approximation of tough tissue. The needle has a NuCoat Technology coating that gives it better initial and multi-pass penetration resulting in less chance for tissue damage. 

Chromic Gut sutures are recommended for use in general soft tissue approximation and or ligation, including use in ophthalmic surgery. It is not recommended to be used in cardiovascular and neurological surgery.

Chromic Gut Sutures cause a small amount of acute inflammatory reaction in tissues that are   expected to have this type of foreign body response to a substance. This reaction is followed by a slow loss of tensile strength and suture mass, as the enzymatic process dissolves the surgical gut until it is completely absorbed.

The sutures are packaged in a solution of 89% isopropanol, 10% water and 1% triethanolmaine. Chromic Gut is treated  with chromic salt solution. Mild chromic sutures are specially treated for ophthalmic and cuticular application.
