Unboxing Video

Before we delve into the details, let's begin with the unboxing video of the GDT PGA Rapid Sutures. This video will offer a firsthand look at the product packaging, and its contents. 

Overview of GDT PGA Rapid Sutures

GDT PGA Rapid Sutures are synthetic, absorbable, multifilament, coated surgical sutures that are completely absorbed by hydrolysis in the body. They are uniquely beneficial for dental implantology procedures due to their predictable absorption timeline and lack of antigenic reaction. The suture composition is 90% glycolic acid and 10% lactic acid copolymerization, coated with poly (glycolide-co-L lactide) and calcium stearate. The violet color provides excellent visibility during surgery. The coating ensures non-capillarity, allowing the suture to glide easily and reliably without damage while tying knots.

Product Specifications, Features, and Benefits

GDT PGA Rapid Sutures are designed for short-term tissue operations, providing high tensile strength, knot safety, and lower suture memory. They support wounds for approximately 10-14 days and are fully absorbed by the body in about 40-45 days. On the 5th day, the tensile strength is about 50%, and by the 14th day, the sutures provide 0% wound support as they are completely loosened. These sutures feature excellent tensile strength, knot-tying ability, and minimal tissue reaction. Additionally, they are equipped with a new, improved atraumatic needle, offering an even less traumatic experience for the patient. The synthetic nature of this suture material ensures perfect compatibility with all patients, an essential requirement in the healing process. Unlike many organic substances, PGA does not naturally occur, resulting in a minimal immune response when used.

Indications and Applications

GDT PGA Rapid Sutures are highly suitable for a variety of uses across multiple fields, including:

  • Dental Implantology
  • General Surgery
  • Plastic Surgery
  • Ophthalmic Surgery
  • Gynecology-Obstetrics
  • Episiotomy
  • Orthopedics
  • Gastroenterology
  • General Closing Bondage
  • Pediatrics
  • Cuticles


In conclusion, GDT PGA Rapid Sutures are the gold standard for reliability and predictability in absorbable sutures. Their combination of high tensile strength, minimal tissue reactivity, and efficient absorption makes them ideal for a wide range of dental and surgical applications. The detailed design, including the violet color for easy visibility and the improved atraumatic needle, ensures precision and efficiency during procedures.

By choosing GDT PGA Rapid 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.
