This product can be sold to licensed practitioners only.

CHROMIC GUT sutures are absorbable sterile surgical sutures composed
of purified connective tissue (mostly collagen) derived from the serosal layer
of beef (bovine) intestines. They are packaged in a solution of 89%
isopropanol, 10% water and 1% triethanolmaine. CHROMIC GUT is treated
with chromic salt solution.

Indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation.

The use of these sutures is contraindicated in patients with known
sensitivities or allergies to collagen or chromium, as gut is a collagen based
material and CHROMIC GUT is treated with chromic salt solutions.

Absorption of CHROMIC GUT sutures occurs by enzymatic process similar
to the digestion of an animal protein by the body. Being enzymatic, the
process is subject to different influencing factors and it is virtually
impossible to indicate the exact designation of a consistent absorption time.
