DSI Chromic Catgut suture is naturally degraded by the body’s own proteolytic enzymes. DSI Chromic Catgut is an absorbable suture made by twisting together strands of purified collagen taken from bovine intestines (free of BSE and aphthous fever) with the uniform chromic coating finishing process. The natural Chromic Catgut thread is a precision ground in order to achieve a close to monofilament character and treated with a glycerol-containing solution. DSI Chromic Catgut suture absorption is complete by 50 – 70 days and full tensile strength remains for two weeks. This eventual disintegration makes it good for use in rapidly healing tissues and in internal structures that cannot be re-access for suture removal. DSI Chromic gut sutures have been developed especially for dental purposes. The ability of the sutures to be absorbed in a period that is perfectly aligned in time with healing after surgical procedures. DSI Chromic Catgut suture has a high knot-pull tensile strength and good knot security due to special excellent handling features. It is used for all surgical procedures including general closure, orthopedics, obstetrics/gynecology, and gastrointestinal surgery. The fast-absorbing surgical gut suture is a strand of collagenous material prepared from the submucosal layers of the small intestine or from the serosal layers of the healthy bovine. DSI Chromic Catgut suture is used on skin wound closure, or after surgical operations on the outside of the body, where the sutures can be removed after a few weeks. It also can be used in veterinary, and have great effectiveness. DSI Chromic Catgut suture is used in dentistry for any kind of surgical procedures, thanks to its strength it has a high demand on the market, among dentistry surgeons.
Distinctive Characteristics of DSI Chromic Catgut suture:
• Great strength, tension maintained over time.
• A natural material with minimal tissue reactivity.
• Exceptional for skin closures.
• Flexible, easy to handle and tie.
• Excellent histocompatibility.
DSI takes extreme caution in everything that has to be sterile for the patient’s, that is why DSI Chromic Catgut Sutures are meet a “Grade A” sterile standards. The local zone for high-risk operations, filling zone, stopper bowls. such conditions are provided by a laminar airflow workstation. Laminar airflow systems provide a homogeneous airspeed in a range of 0.36 – 0.54 m/s (guidance value) at the working position in open cleanroom applications. The maintenance of laminarity is demonstrated and validated. The final stage of sterilization is made with radiology and the gamma-ray sterilization process takes up to one month and never has to be interrupted. DSI Chromic Catgut Sutures are licensed with CE and ISO. Those licenses are our promise that we meet the highest world’s standards, and have the highest quality material. Every pack has a double sterile layer and laid in an aluminum foil, that protects the sutures. Every suture comes in with a specially designed curved needle. DSI specializes in implants, prosthetics, and dental surgical tools. DSI has a huge advantage, thanks to the ability, experience, and technology, by developing a new generation of needles for the sutures. DSI needles are made of surgical steel alloy and made as slim as possible without compromising strength, stable in the grasp of a needle holder, able to carry suture material through tissue with minimal trauma. DSI needles sharp enough to penetrate tissue with minimal resistance, Rigid to resist bending, yet ductile to resist breaking, sterile, and corrosion-resistant.
