VISORB QUICK® Fast-Absorbing, Braided, Coated, Polyglycolic Acid (PGA), Synthetic Absorbable Suture
Visorb Quick® is a fast absorbing, coated, braided polyglycolic acid, synthetic absorbable, sterile surgical suture composed of a 100% polymer made from polyglycolic acid. The undyed suture is milk white in color.
Fast absorbing polyglycolic acid is intendend to model the performance of collagen (surgical gut) suture.
Visorb Quick® synthetic absorbable suture is indicated only for the use in superficial soft tissue approximation of the skin and mucosa, where only short-term wound support is required. Coated Visorb Quick® suture is not intended for use in ligation, ophthalmic, cardiovascular or neurological procedures.
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.
Subcutaneous tissue implantation studies of coated Visorb Quick® sutures in rats show that after 7 days post-implantation, approximately 54% of the origional tensile strength remains. 50% of the origional tensile strength is lost by approximately 9-11 days postimpantation. Intramuscular implantation studies in rats shows that the absorption of these sutures occurs therafter and is essentially complete by 42 days.
Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength without appreciable loss of mass. Absorption of Visorb Quick sutures is essentially complete in 42 days.
Visorb Quick® sutures are available in USP sizes 6/0 through 1 (metric sizes 0.7-4.0). Visorb Quick® is available with needles in one dozen boxes.
