Cascade HealthCare Products carries Undyed Coated VICRYL (polyglactin 910) Sutures from Ethicon Inc. Coated VICRYL Suture is a synthetic absorbable sterile surgical suture composed of a copolymer made from 90% glycolide and 10% L-lactide.
Coated Undyed VICRYL Suture has a tensile strength that is greater than gut and knot security that will last longer than gut by a few weeks. Coated VICRYL is said to absorb completely in 56 - 90 days. We also carry Violet Dyed Coated VICRYL, which is more visible, making it ideal for situations where you want to make sure the suture can be seen more clearly.
We offer undyed Coated VICRYL Sutures in different sizes of varying strengths with Taper Point Needles.
