PRODUCTS / SUTURES / ABSORBABLE

A. Titan's absorbable suture material consists of plain gut, chromic gut, and PGA or polyglycolic acid/vicryl suture material.

Plain gut suture material lasts about 2 – 5 days with actual strength and will be completely absorbed after 14 days.  

Chromic gut suture material is treated in chromic acid salt and retains its actual strength for about 6 – 10 days. Chromic Gut  is completely absorbed within 20 – 35 days.

PGA Fast (end codes: PGAR) retains 50% of its original tensile strength at 6 – 9 days after placement,  It loses all tensile strength after approx. 14 days, and is completely dissolved after about 42 days.  

PGA (end codes: PGA) retains 82% of the original tensile strength at 14 days after placement, 56% at 21 days, and is completely dissolved after 90 – 100 days.
