DSI Plain Catgut is an absorbable suture crafted from purified strands of collagen that originate from bovine intestines (free of BSE and aphthous fever). This particular type of suture boasts a structure that combines both multifilament and monofilament properties, making it ideal for creating knots with high tensile strength. This suture is absorbed in a process known as phagocytosis, wherein it is broken down into smaller parts that are reabsorbed within 50 to 70 days. During this time period, its full tensile strength remains for two weeks before finally disintegrating. This characteristic makes it suitable for use on tissue that heals quickly and internal structures where removal of sutures cannot be facilitated.
DSI Plain Catgut sutures are specifically tailored for dental treatment. Their rate of absorption is synced with the timeline of recovery following surgical operations, and they provide a significant knot-pull tensile strength together with strong knot security due to remarkable handling characteristics.
For medical professionals seeking an ideal suture to use in various surgical procedures, DSI Plain Catgut is a viable option. This absorbable suture can be used for more than just dental needs, as it is suitable for ligatures and general closure operations, as well as gastrointestinal surgery and cuticles. Additionally, it works especially well for pediatric surgery due to its ability to rapidly regenerate tissue. Overall, this type of suture offers numerous benefits when needing an optimal solution for multiple applications.
DSI Sutures are of the highest grade in terms of sterility and meet stringent "Grade A" sterilization standards. This process involves radiology techniques, as well as gamma-ray sterilization, which can take up to one month to complete without interruption. All sutures are licensed by CE and ISO and will come packaged with a double layer of sterile protection inside aluminum foil for an added level of security.
Crafted with careful attention to detail, DSI Suture needles are made from a 300-series surgical steel alloy. Meticulously designed to be as slim as possible without comprising strength, their laser-sharpened edges ensure that sutures can be successfully passed through tissue with minimal injury. Crafted with exceptional rigidity to avoid any bending, while ductility minimizes breaking. Incredibly stable in a needle holder and resilient against corrosion.
