Product Description

Composed of LACTOMER glycolide/lactide copolymer which is a synthetic polyester composed of glycolide and lactide derived from glycolic and lactic acids. POLYSORB sutures are prepared by coating the suture with a mixture of caprolactone/glycolide copolymer and calcium stearoyl lactylate.


  • The advanced extrusion process of the molecule of LACTOMER 9-1, the exclusive braiding process and coating system give the suture:
  • Excellent strength over the critical wound healing period;
  • Excellent knot security;
  • Excellent handling;
  • Predictable absorption profile.
  • POLYSORB sutures are indicated for use in soft tissue approximation or ligation and ophthalmic surgery, but not in cardiovascular or neural tissue.
