Catgut is a suture material that fully complies with the requirements of the international standard ISO
Characteristics - Catgut is the oldest and most popular suture material. Catgut is sterile and consists entirely of natural, biological components - for its production using purified connective tissue (collagen) of the intestines of cattle. The process of its production is quite complicated (more than 10 consecutive operations), including: the raw materials are treated with a special solution, scrapers, divided into tapes, bleached in perhydrol and caustic soda solutions, twisted into threads, fumigated with sulfur dioxide, immersed in a weak solution of acetic acid, dried, polished, disassembled by thickness, degreased and sterilized. Catgut is widely used in operations on the gastrointestinal tract, in urology and gynecology, on the bronchi and lungs, in trauma surgery and in closing wounds.
The resorption period is short. Catgut loses about 50% of its strength within two to ten days from the moment of operation.
The thread is any long, both with atraumatic needles and without them.
The set may include spatula needles of different circles (3/8, 1/2, 1/4, 5/8); straight needles (4mm - 75mm); piercing needles, cutting, combined.
