Overview for CP Medical 181A VISORB® PGA Synthetic Absorbable Sutures with Softcut Needles, 1/2 Circle, 12 per Box

The CP Medical VISORB® PGA Synthetic Absorbable Sutures with Softcut Needles, 1/2 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, in various sizes. Sizes 2-0 and 3-0 are for closure of muscle layers or bowel repair. They also feature softcut needles, which have a cutting edge that transitions to a round body. This prevents tearing of the suture site while being able to pass easily through tough tissue. Softcut needles are best used on fascia, periosteum, tendons, or specific cardiovascular procedures. Available in 12 per box. Proudly made in the USA.
