Suture Material

 

DemeQUICK (Rapid Absorbable) Surgical Suture is a coated, braided synthetic absorbable suture, composed of copolymers made from 90% glycolide and 10% L-lactide. DemeQUICK (Rapid Absorbable) Surgical Suture is coated with a copolymer made from glycolide L-lactide and calcium stearate, it is available colorless or violet from sizes: USP 6-0 to USP 2.

 

INTENDED USE

 

DemeQUICK (Rapid Absorbable) Surgical Suture is indicated for use in superficial soft tissue approximation (i.e., mucosa and skin) where only short term wound support (7-10 days) is required. DemeQUICK (Rapid Absorbable) Surgical Suture is not intended for use in ligation, cardiovascular, ophthalmic or neurological procedures.

ACTIONS

 

DemeQUICK (Rapid Absorbable) Surgical Suture elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues, which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. Progressive loss of tensile strength and eventual absorption of DemeQUICK (Rapid Absorbable) Surgical Suture occurs by means of hydrolysis, where the copolymer degrades to glycolic and lactic acids which are subsequently absorbed and metabolized by the body.

 

Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength without appreciable loss of mass. Implantation studies indicate that DemeQUICK (Rapid Absorbable) Surgical Suture absorption is essentially complete in approximately 40 days.
