Polyglycolic Acid Fast Suture
MEGASORB RAPIDTM is a short-term, absorbable, braided and coated synthetic suture, made of low molecular weight polyglycolic acid. MEGASORB RAPIDTM degrades by hydrolysis and provides predictable and reliable absorption.
Retains 50% knot tensile strength for up to 6-8 days
Complete mass absorption within 42 days
High initial tensile strength.
Predictable and constant degradation rate.
Good knot security.
Excellent handling properties.
Quick mass absorption.
Indicated only for use in superficial soft tissue approximation of the skin and mucosa, where only short term wound support (7-10 days) is required
