General Features of FOSMEDIC plain catgut sutures
- Absorbable animal originated suture twisted multifilament, beige color.
- Obtained from the thin intestine serous layer of a healthy bovine free of BSE and aphtose fever.
- Because it is an animal originated material, the tissue reactivity is relatively moderated.
- Absorbed by fagositosis in approximately 65 days.
- The thread keeps its tensile strength between 7 and 14 days, the patientis factors can make such tensile strength times vary.
- Color code: Yellow label.
- Frequently used in tissues that have easy healing and that do not require permanent artificial support.
