021-2/0 CHSUT- WN

Chromic sutures are a specific type of surgical suture that are treated with chromic salt solutions to prolong their integrity and minimize tissue reactivity.

The 2/0 Chromic Suture with Needle, typically packaged in boxes of 12, is a popular choice for various surgical procedures due to its reliable performance and quality. These sutures are made from purified connective tissue, mostly collagen, derived from the serosal layer of beef or the submucosal fibrous layer of sheep intestines, which ensures a dependable and predictable absorption and an extremely high tensile strength.

They are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including ophthalmic procedures, but are not recommended for use in cardiovascular and neurological tissues.

The chromic treatment provides greater resistance to absorption, which can be particularly beneficial in internal body environments where a longer-lasting suture is required. Each strand is precision polished to a uniform diameter, allowing for smooth and secure knotting.

  • Sterile, single use chromic catgut sutures.
  • Absorbable.
  • Reverse cutting needles in boxes of 12.
