Product Description

ORIGUT (Plain Catgut) is a fast absorbing surgical gut suture made from strand of collage nous material prepared from the sub mucosal layers of the small intestine of healthy sheep. Fast absorbing surgical gut sutures are sterile and elicit only a slight to minimal tissue reaction during absorption

Type :                    Twisted multifilament with a monofilament appearance

Material :              None

Color :                   Beige

Tissue reaction :    Moderate. Plain catgut enjoys lower tissue reaction

Absorption :           By phagocytosis. Complete mass absorption in approximately 65 days. 

                              Approximately 50% of tensile strength remains after 7 days. When used in 

                               infected tissues or in tissues with increased levels of proteolytic enzymes 

                              (stomach, cervix,and vagina) it is more quickly  absorbed.
