Instructions for use:
The thread with needle has a length of 75 cm on average. The needles areround (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 than48 hours, and occasionally causes inflammation or its rejection. Thereis a risk of contamination because catgut is made of sheep gut (sheeptrembles).

Conditions for stock:
Avoid storage at extreme temperatures and humidity levels.
Check the integrity of each unit before use. Single use material,supplied in sterile packaging, may only be used if packaging isundamaged.

Safety process:
The suture is for single use only.
When suturing: use strict aseptic techniques.

Protection of users:
To prevent stick injuries:
Sutures with curved needles and with round-point needles are lessdangerous than sutures with straight needles and with triangular-pointneedles.
Use surgical gloves, a needle holder and a tissue standard forceps forsuturing. After use, put the used sutures with needles into a sealedcontainer.
Collect and destroy the sealed containers by incineration in acontrolled environment.
