CP Medical Plain Gut sutures are made of purified, highly selected serosal tissue, mostly collagen, obtained from beef (bovine) or sheep (ovine) intestines. Sutures are carefully packaged in a solution of 89% isoproponal, 10% water, and 1% triethanolmine. They exhibit optimal tensile strength, with surface smoothness that facilitates knot rundown and strength. Plain Gut sutures are enzymatic, which means that absorption is similar to the body’s digestion of animal protein, and occurs within 5 to 7 days. Being absorbable, these sutures are not suitable for cardiovascular or neurological procedures. CP Medical Plain Gut Sutures are are equivalent to Ethicon® Plain Gut, Look® Plain Gut, Sharpoint® Plain Gut, and Covidien® Plain Gut. CP Medical Sutures are also suitable for veterinary use.
