Vet-Suture PGA suture is an absorbable, sterile, surgical suture composed of homopolymers of glycolide (100%). The empirical formula of Vet-Suture's PGA is (C2H2O2)n. Vet-Suture's PGA is coated with unique combinaison of Polycaprolactone and Calcium Sterate for added lubrication and smoothness. Absorbtion begins with loss of tensile strength followed by loss of mass. 80% of the original tensile strengh is retained upto 14 days after surgery. 90% of the original tensile strength is lost at the end of the fourth week post implantation. Absorption of Vet-Suture's PGA is minimal upto 10% in two weeks, 25% of the mass gets absorbed in four weeks, upto 75% in two months and absorption is essentially complete between 75 and 90 days. Vet-Suture's PGA sutures are available dyed with D&C Violet n°2.
Used every day by hundreds of veterinary surgeons through Europe, vetsuture®
is the ideal choice for sutures and ligatures of aponeuroses muscles

All the suture materials are set with a high-quality vetfire needle, conceived for the particular custom of the veterinarian art.
