TypeBraided and coated multifilament
CompositionPolyglactine 910, a copolymer made of 90% glycolide and 10%L-lactide
CoatingPoly-glycolide-co-L-lactide and calcium stearate (<1%)
ColourViolet
Tissue reactionMinimal
AbsorptionThe hydrolytic action by which the material is broken down results in total absorption between 56 and 70 days. Between 40% and 50% of tensile strength remain after 21 days.
