Dispsoable sterilized surgical Suture Synthetic Braided absorbable suture with needle (polyglycolic Acid suture)




POLYGLYCOLIC ACID (PGA) SUTURE is an absorbable sterile surgical suture composed of polyglycolic acid.

POLYGLYCOLIC ACID (PGA) SUTURE meets all requirements established by the United States Pharmacopeia (U.S.P.) for Absorbable Surgical Suture.



POLYGLYCOLIC ACID (PGA) SUTURE is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in ophthalmic procedures, but not for use in cardiovasular and neurological procedures.



POLYGLYCOLIC ACID (PGA) SUTURE elicits a minimal tissue reaction and in growth of fibrous connective tissue. Absorption of bioabsorbable sutures occurs by hydrolysis, beginning with loss of tensile strength followed by loss of mass. Absorption of PGA suture is essentially complete between 60 to 90 days.



This suture, being absorbable, should not be used where extended approximation of tissue is required.



As with any foreign body, prolonged contact of this or any other suture with salt solutions, such as those found in the urinary or biliary tracts, may result in calculus formation.

Do not resterilize. Discard open, unused sutures. Store at room temperature. Avoid prolonged exposure to elevated temperatures.

Users should be familiar with surgical procedures and techniques involving absorable suture before using POLYGLYCOLIC ACID (PGA) SUTURE for wound closure, as the risk of wound dehiscence may vary with the site of application and the suture material used.

Acceptable surgical practice should be followed with respect to drainage and closure of contaminated or infected wounds.

The use of this suture may be inappropriate in elderly, malnourished, or debilitated patients, or in patients suffering from conditions which may delay wound healing.

The use of supplemental nonabsorbable sutures should be considered by the surgeon in the closure of sites which may undergo expansion, stretching, or distention or which may require additional support.


In handling this or any other suture material, care should be taken to avoid damage from handling. Avoid crushing or crimping damage due to application of surgical instruments such as forceps or needle holders.

Adequate knot security requires the accepted surgical technique of flat, square ties, with additional throws as warranted by surgical circumstance and the experience of the surgeon. The use of additional throws may be particularly appropriate when knotting monofilaments.

Under some circumstances, notably orthopedic procedures, immobilization by external support may be employed at the discretion of the surgeon.

Skin sutures which remain in place longer than 7 days may cause localized irritation and should be snipped off or removed as indicated.


Adverse effects associated with the use of this device include: wound dehiscence, failure to provide adequate wound support in closure of sites where expansion, stretching or distension occur, failure to provide adequate wound support in elderly, malnourished or debilitated patients or in patients suffering from conditions which may delay wound healing, wound infection, minimal acute inflammatory tissue reaction, localized irritation when skin sutures are left in place for greater than 7 days, calculi formation in urinary and biliary tracts when prolonged contact with salt solutions such as urine and bile occurs, and transitory local irritation.


POLYGLYCOLIC ACID (PGA) SUTURE is available in size 6/0 to 2 (U.S.P.) and supplied as needled suture and ligature, as braided dyed (violet) and undyed. POLYGLYCOLIC ACID (PGA) SUTURE is sterilized by Ethylene Oxide.
