Polyglycolic Acid suture is indicated for use in every type of tissue approximation, including use in ophthalmic surgery but not in cardiovascular surgery, microsurgery or in nervous tissue. This suture can also be used as ligation.
Acceptable suture handling should be followed by closure and drainage of the worked area. In handling suture materials, care should be taken to avoid damage from handling. Avoid crushing or crimping damage due to application of surgical instruments such as forceps or needle holders. As with any suture material, adequate knot security requires the accepted surgical technique of flat and square ties with additional throws as warranted by surgical circumstance and the experience of the surgeon. The use of this suture thread may be inappropriate for elderly patients, malnourished or weakened patients, or patients with any conditions which may contribute to delayed wound healing.
