PGA Absorbable Sutures

Polyglycolic Acid

ALCASORB® sutures are synthetic absorbable sterile surgical sutures which are made of Polyglycolic Acid. The braid structure of the suture is coated. Coated suture is prepared by Calcium Stearate and Polycaprolactone structure.

ALCASORB® sutures when implanted into a living organism, it is absorbed by that organism and cause no undue tissue irritation. ALCASORB® sutures have been found to be non-antigenic, non- pyrogenic and elicit only a mild tissue reaction during absorption.

ALCASORB®
sutures meet all requirements for synthetic absorbable surgical sutures specified at the European Pharmacopoeia (EP) and United States Pharmacopoeia (USP).
In order to ease of operation, ALCASORB® sutures are coloured violet.

ALCASORB® sutures has been presented in USP 6/0 – USP 3-gauge sizes in a variety of lengths from 10 cm to 150cm, as non-needled or attached to stainless steel needles of varying types and sizes.
