Vicryl suture 6-0, V301G, BV-1 needle, 45 cm purple



Vicryl is probably the world’s most well known suture. And that is not strange. Vicryl is an absorbable suture with a predictable absorption time and is backed up by much research and studies.

The suture is braided which gives it strength and nice handling and knot tying properties. A coating ensures that the vicryl-suture smoothly glides through the tissue without cutting it’s way through.

Vicryl is a synthetic suture which minimizes the risk of tissue reactions.
