General information

Absorbable sutures includes:

  • Sutures (thread mounted in a needle) for joining the edges of a wound or incision by stitching.
  • Ligatures (thread without needle) used to tie up a bleeding artery.

Specifications

Materials:

Thread: polyglactin 910 (copolymer composed of  90% glycoside and 10% L-lacticide)

 

Thread coating: mixture of equal parts copolymer of glycoside and lactide (polyglactin 370) and calcium stearate.

 

Needle: treated stainless steel.

 

A suture holds a wound together, in good apposition, until such time as the natural healing process is sufficiently well-advanced as to render support from suture materials unnecessary and redundant.

 

Thread: The absorbable synthetic sterile thread polyglactin 910 (e.g., EthiconVicryl a violet-dyed braided suture) elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissue and minimal ingrowths of fibrous connective tissue.

 

Polyglactin 910 thread progressively loses tensile strength; absorption eventual occurs via hydrolysis: a process in which the copolymer degrades to glycolic and lactic acids that are subsequently absorbed and metabolized in the body.

 

Coating: Braided material is often coated to decrease capillarity and to create a smooth surface. Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength followed by a loss of mass.

 

Vicryl; Indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including ophthalmic procedures, but not for use in vascular or neurological tissues.

Tensile strength:

Post implantation

 

- 50% at 21 days

 

- 0% at  35 days 

Absorption:

Essentially completed between 56 and 70 days.

      

Vicryl Rapid: Indicated for use in soft tissue approximation of the skin and mucosa where only short-term support to a wound is required. Not intended for use in ligation, ophthalmic, cardiovascular or neurological procedures.

Tensile strength:

Post implantation

 

-50% at 5 days

 

-0% at  12 days

Absorption:

Essentially completed between 35 and 42 days.

 

The braid’s coated multifilament ensures ease of handling and knotting; the special lubricant coating remains bonded to the material throughout its use, ensuring the sutures smooth passage through tissue and easy knot tie-down.

 

Thread Gauge: as indicated in the Unite States Pharmacopoeia (USP) and the European pharmacopoeia (EP).

Needles:

- Type: eyeless with attached needle, thread mounted on needle

 

- Point: round (non-cutting) has no edges that can cut through tissue; it is used for suturing easily torn tissues; i.e., peritoneum or intestine.

 

- Shape: the degree of curvature is described in terms of circumference: ½ to 3/8 of a circle.

 

- Length: available in different lengths 18-48mm.

Unit presentation:

1 suture with needle or 1 ligature, sterile, double packaging, single-use.

Packaging:

Box containing 36 individually-packaged sutures or ligatures marked with the following:

 

- Product name and reference number.

 

- Product description and thread composition.

 

- Thread gauge size in USP and EP.

 

- Needle type and size.

 

- Sterile - Sterilization method (ethylene oxide).

 

- Expiration date, lot and batch number.

 

- CE mark and reference number of notifying body.

Storage:

Maximum temperature 25°C, protect from direct sunlight.

Comments:

Do not re-sterilize: once opened discard all unused sutures and ligatures.

 

Re-sterilizing causes materials to lose their strength and pliability.

Other:

 

Suture quality must meet the characteristics and tests described in the EU and US pharmacopoeias.

Must comply with European Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC or American Directives 21CFR820.
