Details

Sutures by DemeTech - Polyglycolic Acid suture is a synthetic, absorbable, sterile, surgical suture composed of 100% glycolide. The chemical formula of DemeTech's PGA is (C2H2O2)n. Clinical trials have shown that after two weeks, approximately 84% of DemeTech's PGA initial strength remained. At four weeks, approximately 23% of DemeTech's PGA linear tensile strength remained. Sutures by DemeTech - Polyglycolic Acid Suture has been found to be nonantigenic and elicit only mild tissue reactivity during the absorption process.

 

  • Polyglycolic Acid, better known as PGA, is composed of polymers of glycolide acids.
  • DemeTech's PGA is coated to allow for easier passage through tissues with only minimal drag.
  • Coated PGA sutures facilitate:
  • - Easy tissue passage
  • - Precise knot placement
  • - Smooth tie down
  • - A decreased tendency to irritate tissue
  • - Greater tensile strength
  • Absorb duration: 60-90 days
