ABSORBABLE SUTURES

Endure PGLA Surgical Sutures

Braided Multifilament - Poly (glycolide-co-lactide)

The Endure Absorbable PGLA (Polyglycolide-co-Iactide) Suture is a sterile, synthetic suture composed of a copolymer made from 90% glycolide and 10% L-Iactide. The empirical formula of the copolymer is (C2H2O2)m(C3H4O2)n. It is developed with a Poly (glycolide-co-lactide (30/70) and a Calcium Stearate coating. PGLA sutures are great for a wide range of wound care applications, including ophthalmic (e.g. conjunctiva) procedures, whereas Rapid-PGLA sutures are excellent for general soft tissue approximation where only short-term wound support is required.

Wesuture is the brand name of surgical sutures by Endure Industries.Our PGLA Sutures meet the requirements of the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) monograph requirements for absorbable surgical sutures.

INDICATIONS

PGLA Suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in ophthalmic procedures, but not for use in cardiovascular or neural tissue.

PERFORMANCE

The PGLA suture (Polyglycolide-co-Iactide) elicits a minimal initial inflammatory reaction in tissues and ingrowth of fibrous connective tissue. Progressive loss of tensile strength and eventual absorption of Endure PGLA (Polyglycolide-co-Iactide) occurs by means of hydrolysis, where the copolymer degrades to glycolic and lactic acids which are subsequently absorbed and metabolized in the body. Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength followed by a loss of mass.

STERILITY
  • Endure PGLA sutures are sterilized by Ethylene Oxide
  • Do not re-sterilize!
  • Do not use if package is opened or damaged!
  • Discard opened, unused sutures!
