Absorbable Sutures Plain Catgut

Surgical Single Use Plain Catgut Sutures

Plain catgut surgical sutures are an absorbable sterile suture composed of purified connective tissue derived from either the serosal layer of beef or submucosal fibrous layer of sheep intestines. The chromic gut contains a salt solution to delay absorption. Surgical catgut suture meets all requirements established by the United States Pharmacopeia (U.S.P) for absorbable surgical sutures.


For use in general, soft tissue approximation and/or ligation including use in ophthalmic procedures, but not for use in cardiovascular and neurological procedures.


This suture being absorbable, should not be used where extended approximation of tissue is required, as catgut is a collyagen based material.
