MCV-0 | Micro Cassette, VILET, PGLA, Violet, Size 0, 25m

$106.45

Vilet® is a synthetic absorbable suture composed of a copolymer made from 90% glycolide and 10% L-lactide (PGLA). It is coated with calcium stearate and 30:70 poly(glycolide-co-L-lactide).

Characteristics
High tensile strength throughout the critical wound healing period 
Excellent knot security and tie down
Superb handling—Smooth Tissue Passage 
Reliable absorption profile
Meets or exceeds the USP & EP requirements

Indications 
PGLA 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. PGLA surgical suture is provided sterile for one time use only.

Actions 
90% glycolide and 10% L-lactide (PGLA) suture may elicit a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues, followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. Loss of tensile strength is progressive absorption of PGLA sutures occurs by means of hydrolysis. 

Tensile Strength 
Vilet® (PGLA) suture approximately retains 75% of the original tensile strength at 2 weeks and 50% at 3 weeks during subcutaneous tissue implantation studies in rats. 

Absorption 
Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength without appreciable loss of mass. Complete absorption of Vilet® sutures is essentially complete between 90 and 100 days. 

Sterilization 
Ethylene oxide. 

Packaging 
Vilet® (PGLA) suture is supplied sterile in precut lengths attached to various needle types in one-dozen boxes, also available precut non-needled.
