4-0 Absorbable Medical Sterile Sutures
Brand new, fresh dated American hospital grade sterile 4-0 x 30” absorbable sutures with reverse cutting 19mm 3/8 circle needles. Suture material made with chromic gut. Each sterile suture is double sealed for extra protection. We’ve seen these selling for as much as $12.99 each, so you can see what a great deal these are.
The 4-0 absorbable suture size is useful for a variety of procedures below the skin, inside the mouth, for skin suturing for high tension lacerations, or in other awkward areas where suture removal would be difficult. Chromic gut absorbable sutures are made for slow absorption and are made to keep their strength for 10 to 14 days.
These 4-0 absorbable sutures include an attached reverse cutting 19mm needle and gut strand measures 30” long. Reverse cutting needles are sharp and strong. Medical professionals use reverse cutting needles almost exclusively for this reason. They also have a reduced risk of cutout because the cutting edge is opposite the pull of the wound.
The suture needles are swaged; the suture thread is run directly into the end of the needle, rather than being threaded through and tied onto a needle eye. Swaged sutures save physicians, nurses, and professionals the time that it takes to tie a suture. Second, the narrower join of a swaged needle causes less tissue trauma.
Made in the USA.
