Fast absorbing braided and coated polyglycolic acid sutures for quick healing with Truglyde Fast

FEATURES OF TRUGLYDE FAST

  • Faster and predictable absorption
  • Reduces pain and discomfort
  • Consistent, short term wound support
  • Good knot security and easy knot placement
  • Tightly braided to enhance strength and improve surface smoothness
  • Patients with standard synthetic sutures require removal of unabsorbed suture material compared to rapidly absorbed sutures
  • Trupass coated needle for easy penetration and extended smoothness

Truglyde Fast provides faster absorption period (essentially absorbs within 60 – 75 days), which is convenient during surgeries likes episiotomy and circumcision. The suture retains approximately 15% of the initial tensile strength at 2 weeks of implantation. The material used in this suture is softer compared to conventional suture materials like catgut.
