Composition Colour Range Characteristic 
Braided and coated suture made from 90% glycolide and 10% L-lactide Violet and Natural 6/0 to 2 USP Absorbable, multifilament, coated, synthetic, high tensile strength, reduced capillary effect, short-term healing

Chirasorb rapid braided is a short-term absorbable, coated, synthetic, multifilament suture made of 90% glycolide and 10% L-lactide. The substances contained in the coating and suture are non-antigenic and non-collagenous. Sterile Chirasorb rapid braided is available in violet and natural.

Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength without appreciable loss of mass. The product elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues.

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