Plain Gut

Product Material Effective Wound Support Absorption Time (Days)


Gut Fiber with Chromium Salt 10 - 14 Days within 70



Plain Gut  Monofilaments and Absorbable Sutures are absorbable sterile surgical sutures composed of purified connective tissue (mostly collagen) derived from the serosal layer of beef (bovine) or sheep intestines. They are packaged in a solution of 89% isopropanol, 10% water and 1% triethanolamine. Plain Gut Absorbable Sutures meet all requirements established by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and the European Pharmacopeia (EP) for absorbable surgical sutures. Due to an extremely short absorption period, Plain Catgut elicits only minimal reaction in tissues. Plain Catgut is absorbed more rapidly in infected arenas. As such, 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.
