DSI Plain Catgut suture is naturally degraded by the body's own proteolytic enzymes. DSI Plain Catgut is an absorbable suture made by twisting together strands of purified collagen taken from bovine intestines (free of BSE and aphthous fever). The natural Plain Catgut thread is a precision ground in order to achieve a multifilament character and treated with a glycerol-containing solution. DSI Plain Catgut suture absorption is complete by 50 - 70 days and full tensile strength remains for two weeks. This eventual disintegration makes it good for use in rapidly healing tissues and in internal structures that cannot be re-access for suture removal.
DSI Plain Catgut sutures have been developed especially for dental purposes. The ability of the sutures to be absorbed in a period that is perfectly aligned in time with healing after surgical procedures. DSI Plain Catgut suture has a high knot-pull tensile strength and good knot security due to special excellent handling features. It is used for all surgical procedures including general closure, orthopedics, obstetrics/gynecology, and gastrointestinal surgery. The fast-absorbing surgical gut suture is a strand of collagenous material prepared from the submucosal layers of the small intestine or from the serosal layers of the healthy bovine.
Distinctive Characteristics of DSI Plain Catgut suture:
DSI Plain Catgut suture is used on skin wound closure, or after surgical operations on the outside of the body, where the sutures can be removed after a few weeks. It also can be used in veterinary, and have great effectiveness. DSI Plain Catgut suture is used in dentistry for any kind of surgical procedures, thanks to its strength it has a high demand on the market, among dentistry surgeons.
