CHROMIC GUT SUTURE WITH REVERSE CUTTING NEEDLE

Cascade HealthCare Products carries 3-0 Chromic Gut Suture with Reverse Cutting Needles by Ethicon. The reverse cutting needle is used almost exclusively for wound and laceration care. The first third of the needle wire is triangularly shaped and the remaining two-thirds of the wire is flattened with rounded corners. It is designed with a sharp outer edge to allow for smooth penetration of tough skin and fascia, in a way that isn’t traumatic.

The 3-0 suture is ideally used in areas requiring good retention and is commonly used for birth-related repairs.
