Surgical Gut Suture - Chromic
Surgical gut suture is an absorbable, sterile surgical suture composed of purified connective tissue (mostly collagen) derived from either the serosal layer of beef (bovine) or the submucosal fibrous layer of sheep (ovine) intestines. Surgical gut sutures are available in plain or chromic. Chromic gut is processed to provide greater resistance to absorption.
Surgical gut suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in ophthalmic procedures, but not for use in cardiovascular and neurological tissues.

ETHICON™ Suture Needles
Carefully selecting a surgical suture needle is a critical component in achieving excellent wound closure outcomes. The ideal surgical needle should be:
- Sharp enough to penetrate and carry suture through tissue with minimal resistance
- Slim as possible without compromising strength
- Rigid to resist bending, yet ductile to resist breaking
- Stable in the grasp of the needleholder
Ethicon offers over 200 types of surgical suture needles, allowing clinicians great flexibility to select the most appropriate needle for the specific needs of the tissue being repaired.
