PGLA® is an absorbable, sterile, surgical suture, composed of Polyglactin 910. PGLA® is colored violet with D & C Violet No. 2, conforming to U.S. Code of Federal regulations. For added lubrication and smoothness, PGLA® is coated with unique combination of Polyglycolide-co-lactide (30/70) and Calcium Stearate. PGLA® Sutures get absorbed in the site of implantation, owing to hydrolysis, where the polymer degrades to Glycolic acid and lactic acid. Absorption begins with loss of tensile strength followed by loss of mass. 80% of original tensile strength is retained up to 14days after surgery. 90% of initial tensile strength is lost at the end of 4th week post implantation. Absorption of PGLA® suture is minimal upto 10% in two weeks, 25% of mass gets absorbed in four weeks, upto 75% in two months and absorption is essentially complete between 56 and 70 days.





Used every day by hundreds of veterinary surgeons through Europe, vetsuture® PGLA is the ideal choice for sutures and ligatures of aponeuroses muscles of dogs, cats, and smallpets such as rabbits, chinchillas.
