Instructions for use:
For internal suture. The thread with needle has a length of 75 cm onaverage.
The needles are triangular in section (to pass through the tissue moreeasily). This suture is synthetic, of slow absorption type, which isabsorbed after 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 than48 hours, and occasionally causes inflammation or its rejection. Thereis a risk of contamination because catgut is made of sheep gut (sheeptrembles).
