Description

 
Absorbable Suture, Chromic. Composed of purified connective tissue (mostly collagen) derived from either serosal layer of beef (bovine) or submucosal fibrous layer of sheep (ovine) intestines. Chromic gut is processed to provide greater resistance to absorption.

Surgical gut suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in ophthalmic procedures, but not for use in cardiovascular and neurological tissues.

Surgical Gut Sutures, being absorbable, should not be used where extended approximation of tissue is required.

When surgical gut suture is placed in tissue, a moderate tissue inflammation occurs, which is characteristic of foreign body response to a substance. This is followed by loss of tensile strength and a loss of suture mass, as the proteolytic enzymatic digestive process dissolves the surgical gut. This process continues until the suture is completely absorbed.
