MITSUTM is a mid-term absorbable braided and coated synthetic suture made of poly (glycolide-co-l-lactide)(90/10). MITSUTM degrades by hydrolysis and assures predictable and reliable absorption.

Made from copolymer of 90% glycolide & 10% lactide, MITSUTM(Polyglactin 910) suture is available as dyed and undyed. MITSUTM contains only FDA approved colour additives. The suture coating is a mixture composed of copolymer of glycolide and lactide (Polyglactin 370) and Calcium stearate.
