Neosorb Rapid (PGLA)
NEOSORB PGLA Synthetic Absorbable Surgical Suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation.
NEOSORB PGLA Synthetic 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 NEOSORB PGLA Synthetic Absorbable Sutures occurs hydrolysis, where the polymer degrades to glycolic and lactic acids which are subsequently absorbed and metabolized in the body.
Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength without appreciable loss of mass. NEOSORB PGLA retains approximately 50% of the average E.P. tensile strength requirement at the end of the 3nd post implantation week. The absorption of the suture is essentially complete between 56-70 days.
All Medipac sutures come in packs of 24 unless otherwise specified
