 Product Description

VISORB®

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

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

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.

COLOR (s)

Violet or undyed

PACKAGING

Visorb® is available in USP sizes 6-0 through 3 (metric sizes 1-6).  Visorb® is available with or without needles in one dozen boxes, or in veterinary suture cassettes.
