WEGO GUT:

Chromic catgut suture is twisted brown suture and tensile strength retention days are 21-28 days. It is applicable for General, soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, ophthalmic procedures, but not for use in cardiovascular and neurological procedures.

Plain catgut suture is twisted yellow suture and tensile strength retention days are 7-10 days. It is applicable for General, soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, ophthalmic procedures, but not for use in cardiovascular and neurological procedures.

Great handling properties 
    Secure knot holding
       Long-term absorption profile
