c-tec CATGUT plain is produced from the submucosa of the sheep gut or the serosa of beef gut. A special manufacturing process secures the extraction of gut strands of highest collagen purity. These are twisted, dried and then calibrated electronically to a uniform diameter.
c-tec CATGUT plain distinguishes itself through constant diameter and homogeneous tensile strength. The suppleness of the thread is granted by an alcohol preservation solution which facilitates a precise knotting. The degradation of the c-tec CATGUT plain thread takes place through enzymatic proteolysis.
The resorption of c-tec CATGUT plain is completed within 7-12 days.
Approximation of soft tissues and ligatures. Low tissue Reaction.
Not to be used for sutures which undergo long-term mechanical tension. Not to be used in nervous tissues or in sutures of the blood circulation system. Not to be used in case of known hypersensitivity to collagen.
Store at ambient temperature (+10 °C à +25 °C) in the original packaging and protect from light and moisture.
