The Endure Absorbable PGLA (Polyglycolide-co-Iactide) Suture is a sterile, synthetic suture composed of a copolymer made from 90% glycol ide 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.
They are intended for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in ophthalmic procedures, but not for use in cardiovascular or neural tissue.
WeSuture is the brand name of sutures by Endure Industries. Our PGLA Sutures meet the requirements of the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) monograph requirements for absorbable surgical sutures.
