Omnia® PGA (Polyglycolic Acid) Sutures - Absorbable
PGA surgical suture is a synthetic absorbable surgical suture manufactured by weaving of woven polyglycolic
acid fibres. PGA suture has a layer of polycaprolactone copolymer. The absorption of the suture is essentially complete between 50 and 90 days. The sutures retain approximately 75% of the average tensile E.P. tensile strengh requirement at the end of the 2nd post implantation week, and more than 35% at the end of the 3rd week. It can be used in all the cases, when stitches do not need to be removed, and in particularly sensitive tissues along with absorbable membranes.
PGA Sutures are absorbable sutures that guarantee great stability of knot and tightness of the suture.
Plastic periodontal surgery, for example in suturing connective tissue grafts, replacement of connective graft and three-dimensional collagen matrices positioned below the primary flap.
Similarly, the PGA absorbable sutures can be used in mucogingival surgery, fro example frenectomy and increases of keranized tissue, especially when there is need to perform sutures in alveolar mucosa.
