Glycolon sutures are superior to any other suture material I've used. The material is strong, flexible, easy to handle, and sizes are offered for microsurgical procedures.
The Glycolon suture is ideal for theses cases where longer surface support is needed in graft cases. They are well tolerated by the patient if you cut tail ends "long".
An excellent monofilament resorbable suture. This is my primary suture to use in place of nylon or prolene.
Best resorbable suture I have ever used. Gentle precision needle. Thin but strong when placed, with reliable resorption after 2-3 weeks. Knots well.
The handling property is the best I've experienced.
I have been impressed and thrilled about the results I have had with Resorba sutures in regard to sustainable needle sharpness and ease of suture use. My office has switched nearly 90% of our suture use to Resorba sutures.
