Evaluation: Ethicon Chromic Gut and Plain Gut—Short/Mid-Term Absorbable, Natural, Monofilament Sutures

July 19, 2017 | Evaluations & Guidance

Preview

Ethicon's Chromic Gut monofilament collagen suture product line is a very good choice for an absorbable, natural suture as it has consistently high tensile breaking force. The Plain Gut monofilament collagen suture product line is a good choice for an absorbable, natural suture as it met all of ECRI Institute's performance criteria requirements.
