About DemeSORB Sutures

DemeTECH's Polyglycolic Acid (PGA) suture is a synthetic absorbable, coated braided, sterile, surgical suture composed of 100% glycolide coated with a mixture of polycaprolactone and calcium stearate. The chemical formula of DemeTECH’s PGA is (C2H202) n.  Studies have shown that in two weeks, approximately 84% of DemeTECH‘s PGA initial strength remained. At four weeks, approximately 23% of DemeTECH’s PGA linear tensile strength remained. Suture has been found to be nonantigenic and elicit only mild tissue reactivity during the absorption process.
