Rapid Absorbable Sutures
Characteristics of DemeTech's Rapid Absorbable Sutures:
• DemeTech's Rapid Absorbable sutures give the best characteristics of both natural and synthetic sutures, allowing for the low infection rate of a synthetic suture, while providing the quick absorption and high tensile strength of collagen sutures (catguts).
• Rapid Absorbable is coated to allow for smooth passage through tissue.
•Clinical trials have shown that after 5 days post implantation, 50% of DemeTech's Rapid absorbable initial strength remained. At 10-14 days post implantation, approximately 0% of DemeTech's Rapid Absorbable linear tensile strength remained.
