Composition Colour Range Characteristic 
Antibacterial, braided and coated suture made from 90% glycolide, 10% L-lactide and chlorhexidine diacetate Violet and Natural 5/0 to 4 USP Absorbable, multifilament, antibacterial coating, synthetic, high tensile strength, reduced capillary effect, mid-term healing

Chirasorb Plus braided is a mid-term absorbable, antibacterial coated, synthetic, multifilament suture made of 90% glycolide and 10% L-lactide. The braided suture is covered with antibacterial coating, which consists of copolymer glycolide and lactide, calcium stearate and chlorhexidine diacetate.

Chlorhexidine is a cationic antiseptic with a wide range of antimicrobial effects. It is effective on both Gram-positive and Gramnegative bacteria; the mechanism of action is cytoplasmic membrane disruption.

Sterile Chirasorb Plus braided is available in violet or natural. The product elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues.

Progressive loss of tensile strength and absorption of Chirasorb Plus braided occurs by hydrolysis, when the polymer is degraded to glycolic and lactic acids, which are subsequently absorbed and metabolised by the body.
