Reverse & Premium Reverse Cutting Needles

Long Description:

Reverse cutting needles feature tri-coined, reverse cutting edges for use in dense connective tissue and skin. The cutting edge is on the convex surface of the needle arc, facilitating needle passage while minimizing tissue cut-through. Premium reverse cutting needles are made exclusively of Surgalloy™ material for added strength and ductility.

Overview:

Predictable Strength and Absorption

Gut absorbable sterile surgical sutures are composed of purified connective tissue (mostly collagen) derived from the serosal layer of beef (bovine) intestines. They are packaged in a solution of 89% isopropanol, 10% water and 1% triethanolmaine. Chromic gut sutures are treated with chromic salt solution and mild chromic sutures are specially treated for ophthalmic and cuticular applications. Gut sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in ophthalmic surgery.

The manufacture of catgut raw material, consisting of long ribbons of highly selected serosal tissue, ensures:

  • Purity of collagen for optimal tensile strength and in-vivo performance
  • Uniform treatment with a buffered chromium salt solution, resulting in a chromic strand with a more predictable strength and uniform in-vivo absorption for chromic and mild chromic gut sutures
  • Surface smoothness to facilitate knot run-down and knot strength, due to electronic polishing of each strand
