Polyglycolic Synthetic Absorbable Suture for NCP Reverse Cutting

Item# XA664CPM

Available in sizes 2-0, 0,1. This braided coated, synthetic absorbent suture is composed of polyglycolic acid (PGA). The suture is coated with polycaprolactone and calcium stearate. Comparable to Vicryl®, a registered trademark of Ethicon­®.


  • Length: 30in
  • Dyed: violet no. 2


Polyglycolic acid (PGA) exhibits:

  • Excellent tensile strength throughout the critical wound healing period
  • Excellent knot security
  • Excellent handling
  • Predictable absorption profile
  • Dyed with FDA-approved color additive violet No. 2
  • For use with a reverse cutting needle NC-3 13.0 mm 3/8 circle


  • Cardiovascular surgery
  • Plastic surgery
  • Dental surgery
  • Veterinary surgery


  • Polyglycolic acid is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in ophthalmic procedures
  • Not indicated for use in cardiovascular and neurological procedures


  • Polyglycolic acid suture elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues, followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue
  • Progressive loss of tensile strength and eventual absorption of sutures occurs by means of hydrolysis

Tensile Strength:

  • Subcutaneous tissue implantation studies in rats indicate suture approximately retains 82% of the original tensile strength at 2 weeks and 56% at 3 weeks


  • Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength without appreciable loss of mass
  • Absorption is essentially complete between 90 and 100 days


  • Ethylene oxide
