ADVACAT

Monofilament Natural Absorbable Suture

ADVACAT

ADVACAT Suture is absorbable, sterile surgical suture composed of purified connective tissue (mostly collagen) derived from submucosal fibrous layer of sheep intestines. ADVACAT Suture is available in plain and chromic.

Chromic gut suture is treated with chromic salt solution to provide greater resistance to absorption & change the color to brown for improved visibility.

The manufacture of catgut raw material, consisting of long ribbons of highly selected serosal tissue, ensures:

  • Purity of collagen for optimal tensile strength and in-vivo performance

  • Uniform chromicizing process for predictable & uniform in-vivo absorption

  • Polishing ensures surface smoothness to facilitate smooth knot run-down and excellent knot security.

ADVACAT Suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in ophthalmic procedures, but not for use in cardiovascular and neurological tissues.

ADVACAT Suture is packed in a preservative fluid medium containing isopropanol, purified water, sodium benzoate and 2- diethylaminoethanol which ensures superior pliability, minimal suture memory & fraying.
