Vicryl (polyglactin 910) by Ehticon. A synthetic, braided, absorbable suture.
Vicryl is probably the world's most well known suture. And that is not strange. 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.
Remaing strength of the Vicryl-suture:
2 weeks - 75%
3 weeks - 50%
4 weeks - 25%
Vicryl should be fully absorbed in 56 - 70 days.
