Description

Visorb® exhibits: Excellent tensile strength throughout the critical wound healing period, Excellent knot security, Excellent handling, Predictable absorption profile VISORB® Braided, coated, Polyglycolic Acid (PGA), synthetic absorbable suture Visorb® is a coated, braided, synthetic absorbable surgical suture, composed of Polyglycolic Acid (PGA) and is available both dyed and undyed. When dyed, only FDA-approved color additives are used. The undyed suture is milk white in color. The suture is coated with polycaprolactone and calcium stearate CHARACTERISTICS • Excellent tensile strength throughout the critical wound healing period • Excellent knot security • Excellent handling • Predictable absorption profile INDICATIONS Visorb® is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in ophthalmic procedures, but not for use in cardiovascular and neurological procedures. CONTRAINDICATIONS Due to rapid loss of tensile strength, this suture should not be used where extended approximation of tissue under stress is required or where wound support beyond 7 days is required. PGA is not suitable for cardiovascular or neurological surgical procedures. TENSILE STRENGTH Subcutaneous tissue implantation studies in rats indicate Visorb suture approximately retains 65% of the original tensile strength at 2 weeks post implantation. ABSORPTION Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength without appreciable loss of mass. Absorption of Visorb sutures is essentially complete between 60 and 90 days.
