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
