Description

Vicryl (polyglactin 910) by Ehticon. A synthetic, braided, absorbable suture. Vicryl is probably the world’s most well known suture. And that is well deserved. Vicryl is an absorbable suture with a predictable absorption time and is backed up by much research and studies. The suture is braided which gives it strength and nice handling and knot tying properties.

A coating ensures that the vicryl-suture smoothly glides through the tissue without cutting it’s way through. Vicryl is a synthetic suture which minimizes the risk of tissue reactions..

Remaining tensile strength of the Vicryl suture:

2 weeks – 75%

3 weeks – 50%

4 weeks – 25%

Vicryl should be fully absorbed in 56 – 70 days.
