PRODUCT INFORMATION

  • 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.
  • Tensile strength is retained for up to 14 days, and sometimes as long as 21 days.
  • Easy knot tying characteristics.
  • DemeTech's new technology of chromicizing strands minimizes the possibility of fraying and maximizes the potential and integrity of its Chromic Catgut.
