Synthetic absorbable sterile surgical suture
DAMACRYL suture is synthetic absorbable sterile surgical suture. It is composed of homo polymer prepared and synthesized from 100% Polyglycolic Acid. This sutures are braided, dyed or undyed and coated with polycaprolactone and calcium stearate.
DAMACRYL suture is non-antigenic, non-pyrogenic and elicits only a mild tissue reaction during the absorption process, and is completely absorbed in 60-90 days. The In vitro retention of strength is 83% in two weeks.
DAMACRYL suture complies with the requirements of the United States pharmacopoeia U.S.P. and European pharmacopoeia Ph. Eur. and European Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC.
DAMACRYL suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and ligation, including the use in ophthalmic procedures.
DAMACRYL is not for use in cardiovascular or neurological tissues.
DAMACRYL suture, being absorbable, should not be used where extended approximation of tissue is required.
Users should be familiar with surgical procedures and techniques involving absorbable sutures before employing DAMACRYL suture for wound closure, as risk of wound dehiscence may vary with the site of application and the suture material used.
Users should consider the in vivo performance when selecting a suture. The use of this suture may be inappropriate in elderly, malnourished, or debilitated patients, or in patients suﬀering from conditions which may delay wound healing.
The use of supplemental non absorbable sutures should be considered by the surgeon in the closure of the sites which may undergo expansion, stretching or distention, or which may require additional support.
As with any foreign body, prolonged contact of any suture with salt solutions, such as those found in the urinary or biliary tracts may result in calculus formation.
As an absorbable suture, DAMACRYL suture may act transiently as a
foreign body. Acceptable surgical practice should be followed for the
management of contaminated or infected wounds.
Discard opened packages and unused sutures.
Do not re-use.
Do not re-sterilize.
