KRUUSE I Suture KRUUSE Sacryl Multifilament, braided: For secure knot tying and easy handling Synthetic: Minimal tissue reaction Coated: For easy knot tying and smooth passage through tissue Absorbable: By hydrolysis KRUUSE Sacryl is a braided and coated multifilament synthetic suture composed of Polyglactin 910. Suture I 13 ยท 336 Polyglactin 910 sutures are the most widely used braided and coated synthetic absorbable sutures in the world. On account of its superior properties, this suture has replaced catgut sutures in most applications. In use, KRUUSE Sacryl was found to be non-antigenic, eliciting only mild tissue reactivity during the absorption process. Absorption: Absorbable: n Complete mass absorption in approximately 56-63 days n Absorption by hydrolysis Chemical composition: n KRUUSE Sacryl is composed of Polyglactin 910 (co-polymer of 90% Glycolide and 10% L-lactide) Tensile Strength: n 70 % remains after 14 days n 50 % remains after 21 days (6-0 and larger) n 40 % remains after 21 days (7-0 and smaller) n 25 % remains after 28 days n Complete mass absorption in approximately 56-63 days www.kruuse.com Colour: n Violet and undyed Indications: KRUUSE Sacryl sutures are indicated for soft tissue approximation and ligation, where absorbable sutures are indicated, including: n Suturing of subcutaneous tissue n Fascia n Joint capsules n Muscles n Uterus and GI-surgery n Vascular surgery n Ophthalmic surgery Contraindications: n Where permanent support is required Range: n USP 8-0 to 2 n EP 0.4 to 5 Sterilization method: n EO Packing: n Boxes of 18 peel packs
