“Vicryl suture by Ethicon. Absorbable – synthetic – braided.
Vicryl (polyglactin 910) by Ehticon. A synthetic, braided, absorbable suture.
Vicryl is probably the world’s most well known suture. And that is well deserved. Vicryl is an absorbable suture with a predictable absorption time and is backed up by much research and studies.
The suture is braided which gives it strength and nice handling and knot tying properties. A coating ensures that the vicryl-suture smoothly glides through the tissue without cutting it’s way through.
Vicryl is a synthetic suture which minimizes the risk of tissue reactions..
