Polysorb sutures are composed of Lactomer™ glycolide/lactide copolymer, which is a synthetic polyester composed of glycolide and lactide (derived from glycolic and lactic acids). They are prepared by coating the suture with a mixture of a caprolactone/glycolide copolymer and calcium stearoyl lactylate. The sutures are colored violet to increase visibility and are also available undyed.

The advanced extrusion process of the molecule of Lactomer™ 9-1, the exclusive braiding process and coating system, give the suture:

  • Excellent strength over the critical wound healing period
  • Excellent knot security
  • Excellent handling
  • Predictable absorption profile

Polysorb™ sutures are indicated for use in soft tissue approximation or ligation and ophthalmic surgery, but not in cardiovascular or neural tissue.

In Perfect sealed condition but not for human use in the US.
