Product Specifications

Product SeriesCharacteristic
Chromic Catgut Made from collagen, this catgut has more benefits compared to plain catgut, naturally absorbed by the human body in 90 days.
Plain Catgut A shorter absorption time makes this suture ideal for tissues which require short-term wound closure.
Polyglycolic Acid (PGA) A synthetic suture characterized by exceptional tensile strength and in-vivo inertness.
Rapid Polyglycolic (PGAR) Intended for use in soft tissues where only short term wound closure is required and rapid absorption of the suture is needed.

Surgical Sutures, more commonly known as Stitches, are used in surgical operations to hold body tissues together and enable closure of the wound. They are available in numerous different materials, diameters, lengths, and absorbability, while the needle for applying the sutures also has various options for the shape and point to suit the surgical procedure.

STAYGUARD™ IS THE BRAND OF CHOICE

StayGuard™ Surgical Sutures are available in 12 different materials, all produced only from the highest medical-grade materials, each suitable for different types of wound closures. Such an extensive range of options ensures StayGuard™ has a wound closure solution for every application. These gamma sterilized surgical sutures are wrapped in moisture resistant packaging and are ISO, CE, and USFDA approved.

PRODUCT USAGE

StayGuard™ Surgical Sutures are used in hospitals, operating rooms, and clinics in more than 45 countries. Ideally, surgeons use the smallest possible suture in order to minimize the stimulation in the tissue. However, the sutures need to be firm and stable enough to hold the tissues together at the site of the operation to avoid having further complications.

FAQs

What is the difference between sutures, staples, and steri-strips?
Depending on the different types of wound, different types of treatments are used. Sutures are more commonly known as stitches, where doctors or surgeons utilize thread-like material to sew the tissues. Staples are small metal clips to hold the wound together, used in cases where you need rapid closure of the wound. Steri-strips are used for smaller wounds and sensitive areas. Refer to your surgeon to judge which means of wound closure treatment is the most suitable for you.
Is it painful to have sutures removed?
It may provide some discomfort, but should not be painful. Further consult with the doctor for more information in regards to how long it may take to have the sutures removed.
Do all sutures dissolve?
No, there are largely two branches of sutures: absorbable and non-absorbable. Refer to the product description for more information for specific sutures.
How do I know which type of suture to use?
Different types of wounds require different types of surgical sutures. Check the product description for brief differentiation of one suture from the other. For more specific information, consult with your doctor as different situation may require different types of sutures.
Why would absorbable be used over non-absorbable?
Depending on the material, absorbable sutures take about 10 days to 8 weeks to disintegrate. Absorbable sutures hold the body tissues long enough before disintegration for tissue healing. These are chosen when the patients cannot return to the surgeon for the removal of the suture, or if the site of the wound is at an internal organ that makes it difficult to remove the suture. However, as convenient as it sounds, depending on the person, absorbable sutures may get rejected by the body and cause inflammation. Non-absorbable sutures, on the other hand, are used on wounds that are easily accessible for suture removal post-surgery. These could be removed after a few weeks. Non-absorbable sutures often cause less scarring as well, so in areas where the cosmetic importance is noted, non-absorbable sutures will be used.
