Product Description

ORICHROME (Chromic Catgut) is an absorbable, sterile surgical suture composed of purified connective tissue (mostly collagen) Derived from the sub mucosal fibrous layer of healthy sheep intestines. Strands of purified collagen taken from the Serosal layer of selected bovines, tanned with chrome salts to provide Greater resistance to absorption.

Type :                     Twisted multifilament with a monofilament appearance

Material :                None

Color :                    Dark brown

Tissue reaction :    Moderate.

Absorption :           By phagocytosis. The rate of absorption is slowed down by chromizing. Complete

                               mass absorption in approximately 90 days. Approximately 50% of tensile strength 

                               remains after 14 days. When used in infected tissues or in tissues with increased 

                               levels of proteolytic Enzymes (stomach, cervix, vagina) it is more quickly bsorbed.

Tensile Strength :   Tensile strength is retained for 14 - 21 days.

USP Range :          5/0 - 3

Sterilization :        EO (Ethylene Oxide)

Needle Type :       Round bodied, cutting edge, taper point, straight, blunt point

Packing :              In aluminium foil packages with or without needle
