Unboxing Video

Before diving into the specifics, let's start with the unboxing video of the GDT Chromic Catgut Sutures. This video will give you a look at the product packaging, contents, and initial impressions.

Overview of GDT Chromic Catgut Sutures

GDT Chromic Catgut Sutures are sterile, absorbable surgical sutures composed of purified connective tissue (collagen) derived from the submucosal layer of sheep and goat intestines. These sutures are treated with chromium salt in the trivalent form and oxidized pyrogallol, which prolongs their resistance to absorption and gives them a distinct brown-orange color. The sutures are permanently attached to 3/8 Circle 20.0mm Reverse Cutting hardened stainless steel needles, ensuring accuracy and durability during surgical procedures.

Product Specifications

GDT Chromic Catgut Sutures are engineered to be absorbable, providing tensile strength and prolonged absorption time. Available in USP sizes 3-0, 4-0, and 5-0, each suture has a length of 75.0 cm. These sutures are known for their smooth surface, excellent knot security, and good pliability, ensuring easy handling and minimal tissue reaction.

Indications and Selection

GDT Chromic Catgut Sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation. They are particularly useful in situations where prolonged wound support (14 to 21 days) is desirable. The selection of sutures should be based on the patient’s condition, surgical experience, technique, and wound size.

Mode of Action and Performance

GDT Chromic Catgut Sutures elicit minimal tissue reaction and promote the ingrowth of fibrous connective tissue. Absorption occurs through enzymatic action, beginning with the loss of tensile strength followed by the loss of mass. These sutures retain their tensile strength for 14 to 21 days and are completely absorbed within 60 to 90 days. When implanted, they cause moderate tissue inflammation characteristic of a foreign body response. The proteolytic enzymatic digestive process gradually resorbs the surgical catgut, leading to the loss of suture mass and strength.

Tissue Sites

Catgut sutures are absorbed more rapidly in tissues with higher levels of proteolytic enzymes, such as those found in the secretions from the stomach, cervix, and vagina. They are also absorbed more quickly in infected tissues compared to non-infected tissues.


In conclusion, GDT Chromic Catgut Sutures are an ideal choice for dental professionals seeking high-performance absorbable sutures for general soft tissue approximation and ligation. Their combination of enhanced tensile strength, minimal tissue reactivity, and prolonged absorption makes them ideal for a wide range of dental and surgical applications. The detailed design, including the brown-orange color for easy visibility and the durable connection to the reverse cutting needle, ensures precision and efficiency during procedures.

By choosing GDT Chromic Catgut Sutures, dental practitioners can be confident in their ability to provide secure, effective wound closures with minimal complications. These sutures are not only easy to handle and knot but also demonstrate superior performance in both routine and complex surgical scenarios.
