DemeTech'S Plain Catgut Sutures
DemeTech'S Plain Catgut suture is an absorbable, sterile, surgical suture composed of highly purified connective tissue (mostly collagen) derived from either beef or sheep intestines. Due to an extremely short absorption period, DemeTech'S Plain Catgut elicits only minimal reaction in tissues. DemeTech'S Plain Catgut is absorbed more rapidly in infected arenas. As such, DemeTech'S Plain Catgut will absorb more rapidly in areas where increased levels of enzymes are present. The percentage of collagen in the catgut suture often determines the quality of the suture. Higher percentages of collagen allow for: superior tensile strength, longer absorption times, and lower reactions in vivo.
Distinctive Characteristics of DemeTech'S Plain Catgut Sutures:
DemeTech manufactures its Chromic Catgut sutures with the highest quality collagen, maintaining a composition of 97%-98% of pure collagen.
DemeTech's Plain Catgut is rapidly absorbed
Tensile Strength is maintained for about 10 days
Absorption is complete within 70 days.
DemeTech's Plain Catgut is ideal for tissues which heal rapidly and require minimal support.
