The Endure Absorbable PGCL Suture is a monofilament, synthetic sterile surgical suture composed of a Polymer (Glycolide co-caprolactone). PGCL Sutures have been found to be non-antigenic, nonpyrogenic, and elicit only a slight tissue reaction during absorption. They are intended for use in general soft tissue approximation. But not for use in cardiovascular, or neurological tissues, microsurgery, or ophthalmic surgery.
Our PGCL Sutures meet the requirements of the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) of monograph requirements for absorbable surgical sutures. Wesuture is the brand name of surgical sutures by Endure Industries.
