Sutures, Synthetic, Absorbable, Poliglecaprone

Definition : Synthetic sutures made of polyglecaprone, an absorbable (i.e., biodegradable) polymer prepared from a copolymer of the glycolide epsilon caprolactone. These sutures are typically available in sterile monofilament uncoated thread sections (e.g., 18, 30 in [45, 76 cm] long) attached to a single-use needle as an integral device; they are frequently colored for easy identification during surgery. Polyglecaprone absorbable synthetic sutures keep their tensile strength for less than 3 weeks, and complete absorption occurs in 90 days; their intended use includes general soft tissue approximation (but not cardiovascular or neurologic tissues) and vessel ligation.
