Sutures, Natural, Absorbable, Surgical Gut

Definition : Natural sutures made of surgical gut, a biodegradable (absorbable) material consisting of collagen derived from sheep or beef intestinal mucosa. These sutures are typically available in sterile thread sections (e.g., 18, 30 in [45, 76 cm] long) attached to a single-use needle as an integral device; they are frequently colored for easy identification during surgery. Surgical gut sutures keep their tensile strength for 7 to 10 days, and complete absorption occurs in less than 70 days; their intended use includes repair of rapidly healing tissues, ligating superficial blood vessels, and suturing subcutaneous tissue. Natural surgical gut sutures are usually packed in a solution to prevent drying and to preserve their physical properties. Fast-absorbing (five to seven days) surgical gut sutures for epidermal use and surgical gut sutures impregnated with chromium salts to prolong tensile strength and retard absorption are also available.
