Endure PGCL Surgical Sutures
Monofilament - Poliglecaprone 25
The Endure Absorbable PGCL Suture is a sterile, monofilament synthetic suture composed of Polymer (Glycolide co-caprolactone). PGCL sutures being absorbable, should not be used where extended approximation of tissue under stress is required, such as in fascia.
WeSuture is the brand name of surgical sutures by Endure Industries. Our PGCL Sutures meet the requirements of the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) of monograph requirements for absorbable surgical sutures.
PGCLSuture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation. Sutures should be selected and implanted depending on patient condition, surgical experience, surgical technique and wound size.
PGCL Suture elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues and in-growth of fibrous connective tissue. Progressive loss of tensile strength and eventual absorption of PGCL sutures occurs by means of hydrolysis. Absorption begins as loss of tensile strength followed by loss of mass. Implantation studies in rats indicate that PGCL suture retains approximately 45% of its original tensile strength 7 days post implantation and approximately 15% of its original tensile strength at 14 days post implantation. All of the original tensile strength is lost by 21 days post implantation. The absolute strength remaining 14 days post implantation meets or exceeds that historically observed with plain and chromic gut sutures. Absorption of PGCL absorbable synthetic suture is essentially complete for approximately 90 days.
