Overview for CP Medical 513A VISORB® PGA Synthetic Absorbable Sutures with Precision Reverse Cutting Needles, 3/8 Circle, 12 per Box

The CP Medical VISORB® PGA Synthetic Absorbable Sutures with Precision Reverse Cutting Needles, 3/8 Circle are braided, coated, synthetic absorbable sutures that are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including ophthalmic procedures.

VISORB® Sutures are composed of Polyglycolic Acid (PGA), coated with polycaprolactone and calcium stearate. These sutures display superior tensile strength throughout the critical wound healing period. They also have excellent knot security, ease of handling, and a predictable absorption profile. According to tissue implantation studies in rats, Visorb® sutures retain approximately 65 percent of their original tensile strength after two weeks of implantation. Absorption is completed between 60 and 90 days. Visorb® sutures are equivalent to Ethicon® Vicryl, Look® PGA, Sharpoint® PolySyn, and Covidien® Polysorb. Due to its rapid loss of tensile strength, PGA sutures in general are not suitable for cardiovascular or neurological surgical procedures.

VISORB® Sutures are available both dyed (violet) and undyed. Only FDA-approved color additives are used for dyed sutures. Undyed sutures are milk-white in color. VISORB® Sutures are available in various sizes. Size 0 is best used for closure of the fascia layer in abdominal surgery, or for knee, hip and back surgery; Sizes 2-0 and 3-0 are for closure of muscle layers or bowel repair; while 4-0 and 5-0 are great for larger vessel repair. Size  6-0 is used in vascular graft sewing. They also feature precision reverse cutting needles, which are strong and sharp, with a fine cutting edge. Excellent for small closures in skin, oral mucosa or plastic surgery.
