CompositionPoly (Glycolide – co – L – lactide) [Polyglactin-910]
CoatingCopolymer made of 70% Glycolide ,30% L-lactide, and calcium stearatewith
In vitro retention of strength45% at 1 week
Tissue ReactionNon-antigenic, non-pyrogenic and elicits only a mild tissue reaction during the absorption process
Absorption TimeCompletely absorbed in 40-60 days
Sterilization Ethylene Oxide
Available in Sizes6-0, 5-0, 4-0, 3-0, 2-0, 0, 1, 2

  • High initial tensile strength
  • Soft and smooth feel that helps in easy passage through the tissue with minimal trauma
  • Good knotting properties
  • Excellent handling and smooth tie down
  • Due to the low molecular weight compared to regular Polyglactin 910 or Polyglycolic Acid sutures,
    Damacryl Rapid sutures achieve rapid absorption in the tissues.
