Chirlac rapid braided
Chirlac rapid braided is a short-term absorbable, coated, synthetic, multifilament suture made of low molecular weight polyglycolic acid. The substances contained in the coating and suture are nonantigenic and noncollagenous. Chirlac rapid braided is available in violet and natural.
Progressive loss of tensile strength and absorption of Chirlac rapid braided occurs by hydrolysis, where the polymer degrades to glycolic acid, which is subsequently absorbed and metabolised by the body.
Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength without appreciable loss of mass. The product elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues.
Gynaecology, Ophthalmic (e.g. conjunctiva), Odontology (e.g. oral mucosa), Paediatric and Skin Closure (e.g. intracutaneous, subcutaneous).
Chirlac rapid braided should not be used in tissues subject to expansion, stretching or distension, or which might require long-term mechanical support longer than seven days. The suture is not for use in cardiovascular or neurological tissues.
