    and indication

    Vicryl Rapide Suture, composed of 90% glycolide and 10% L-lactide copolymer, is a synthetic absorbable suture intended to model the performance of collagen suture (surgical bowel) with less tissue reaction. It is indicated for use only in the superficial soft tissue approximation of skin and mucous membranes, with wound support of 7-10 days.

    For longer tissue support and antibacterial activity, try VICRYL ® Plus

    VICRYL® Plus Coated Antibacterial Sutures (Polyglactin 910) provide smooth tissue passage, exceptional handling, knot security, 2-4 weeks of tissue support and have been shown in vitro to inhibit the colonization of suture, a known risk factor for surgical site infection ( SSI).
