If you have been looking for suture micro cassettes that are suitable for use in soft tissue approximation or ligation, as well as use in ophthalmic surgery, then look no further from this MCG-0 | Micro Cassette, Chromic Gut, Size 0, 50m. Do note that this Chromic Gut suture is not indicated for use in neurological or cardiovascular surgeries. The Chromic Gut micro cassette is also only meant for veterinary use and should not be used on adult cardiovascular tissues or microsurgeries.
The absorption process of the Chromic Gut suture occurs through an enzymatic process that is similar to the body’s digestion of animal proteins. As such, it is virtually impossible to accurately predict the exact designation of absorption time. Variables that affect the rate of the loss of tensile strength include tissue sites, absorption, as well as the presence of infection.
