Sutures PGAR Polyglycolic Acid Rapid

PGAR Single Use Sterile Sutures

Polyglycolic Acid Rapid sutures are composed of the same source polymer as that of a Coated Polyglactin suture. It goes through a unique irradiation process, which gives it its reduced molecular weight, and hence the rapid absorption characteristics. Used in general soft tissue approximation including ophthalmic surgery. Not indicated for cardiovascular and neurological tissue approximation.
