Item Code : C190DZ40

More Information
Virtues     :

  1. SURUCRYL® tensile strength surpasses even the standards set by U.S. Pharmacopoeia and substantially higher than catgut as shown below :
  2. SURUCRYL® retains its original tensile strength until the wound has achieved adequate stability. A comparison of “development of wound strength” vis-a-vis in vivo tensile strength of SURUCRYL® establishes safety margin available during critical wound healing period. SURUCRYL® retains its tensile strength of 81 % on 14th day of implantation which makes it an ideal synthetic absorbable suture
  3. SURUCRYL® is coated with non-toxic and bio-compatible material called Polycaprolactone Calcium Stearate which facilitates smooth passage through tissues and firm knotting
  4. SURUCRYL® is absorbed in the body by a simple hydrolytic mechanism which is predictable and reliable
  5. Compared to other Synthetic Absorbable

Suture material available which is rough and stiff, SURUCRYL® is smooth and flexible

PGA is an ideal and time tested synthetic absorbable suture, widely used by surgeons all over the world. PGA’s superior features over catgut are predictable absorption, outstanding tensile strength and excellent handling properties. PGA raw material is FDA USA approved.
