Instructions for use:
The thread with needle has a length of 75 cm on average.
The needles are round (less traumatic for the majority of tissues).
This suture is synthetic, of slow absorption type, which is absorbedafter about 21 days.
It has been chosen in preference to catgut, which is used less and lessoften in any case.
Catgut is absorbed in a few days, sometimes less than 48 hours, andoccasionally causes inflammation or its rejection.
There is a risk of contamination because catgut is made of sheep gut(sheep trembles).

Avoid storage at extreme temperatures and humidity levels.
Check the integrity of each unit before use.
